Cherry_Blossom_: Homemade Nutter Butters
Servings 6 sandwich cookies
FOR THE COOKIES
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
FOR THE FILLING
1/4 cup butter room temperature
1/4 cup peanut butter room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk
#1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
#2 Stir the cookie ingredients together until smooth. Scoop out 1 inch balls of cookie dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Press down with the back of a fork and then press again from the opposite direction, to make the criss-cross pattern on top of each cookie.
#3 To make the cookie dough into the shape of a Nutter Butter cookie, form the cookie dough ball into a log shape.
#4 Roll the cookie dough in sugar (optional).
#5 Press down with the back of a fork and then press again from the opposite direction, to make the criss-cross pattern on top of each cookie. Finish by pinching in both sides of each cookie before baking.
#6 Bake for 12 minutes and then let cool on the tray for 1-2 more minutes.
#7 For the filling: beat the butter and peanut butter in a big bowl with a hand mixer together until smooth.
#8 Slowly add in your powdered sugar and beat until smooth.
#9 Add the milk, one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
#10 Spread a tablespoon of the filling onto the bottom side of one of the cookies and then top with another cookie to create a cookie sandwich…a nutter butter sandwich!
