Last weekend I went to a housewarming party at [livejournal.com profile] tnrkitect's house. His wife had made these amazing peanut butter sandwich cookies, and I meant to get the recipe for them. She'd told me that the filling was cream cheese, powdered sugar and peanut butter, but I wasn't sure of increments. So when I got home, I just googled until I found something that looked similar. This is what I came up with:

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup cream cheese
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 to 6 tbsps milk

In a large mixing bowl, beat peanut butter, cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla and milk. Add more milk as needed to achieve spreading consistency.

Spread on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie.

Holy cow, soooo good. I made peanut butter cookies yesterday, and tried this filling. (I'll put the recipe for the cookies under the cut, but it's just pretty basic) I can't quit eating them, they're so amazing. I took some over to my dad yesterday, who promptly devoured them.

I'm definitely making these the next time we have a cookout or family dinner. And if you're a fan of peanut butter, you should make them, too! I'm just trying now to figure out how to incorporate chocolate into the mix, because that's the one thing I can think of that would actually make this recipe even better. Peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips? Or chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips. The possibilities are endless...
Next time I make them, I think I will leave out the vanilla extract. I may have added a bit too much, but I'm normally a fan of vanilla. In this case though, it didn't quite mesh with the other ingredients. I also had to add more milk, because the filling is THICK, and my mixer kept stalling when I was trying to blend the ingredients. Otherwise, I've gotta say, these cookies are darned near perfection. Oh, another hint, they tend to get a bit soggy if left at room temperature or warmer (they practically melted in the car yesterday on the way to see my parents.) Refrigerating them gives them a better texture, and I think, makes them taste better.

Here's the recipe for the cookies, if you like..

Feed your head. )
