Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • sea salt optional


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar


  • Mix sugars with peanut butter, butter and egg until smooth and creamy. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  • Scoop cookie dough onto an uncreased baking sheet using a medium cookie scoop.
  • Cut each cookie dough ball in half. Roll each half into a small ball.
  • Place two cookie dough balls together then press down with your fingers to flatten into a peanut shape.
  • Make criss cross patterns on each cookie using a fork.
    Sprinkle each cookie with a small amount of sea salt (optional).
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 8-9 minutes (edges should be slightly golden). Let cookies cool completely.
  • Mix peanut butter, honey and powdered sugar together. Spoon into a plastic baggie and cut off the corner of the bag. Pipe onto cookies then add a second cookie to create a sandwich.



One recipe makes 24 cookies which will yield 12 peanut butter cookie sandwiches. The filling is more of a peanut butter consistency vs. a frosting consistency like most cookie sandwiches.
