Peanutter Butter Cookies


A few weeks ago, I shared a fabulous Cookies & Cream Peanut Butter cookie.  Several people commented that they thought Nutter Butter cookies would be good packed inside the peanut butter cookie.  I thought that was a fantastic idea!  As a peanut butter fanatic, I was up to the challenge! 

The cookies were crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside and packed with tons of peanut butter flavor!  They look a little different that your usual peanut butter cookie, since you don't flatten in a crisscross pattern.  The cookies end up having a nice crackled appearance.  We really loved these cookies; especially the little chunks of Nutter Butters inside.  We both had a hard time controlling ourselves around them.  Fortunately, I gave most of the cookies to a friend for her birthday.  Her family had the same reaction we did - they loved them!  This is a keeper.

  3. The only thing that could make a peanut butter cookie any better is more peanut butter! I love how chunky they are - something to really sink your teeth into.

  4. I made these cookies, for my son, on a whim about 2 months ago because I had received some Nutter Butter cookies and they were just sitting there. I have never been a fan of peanut butter cookies but these are awesome!!! I actually found myself eating them (too much, lol). I am planning to make these again and give them out as Christmas gifts. Thanks for a great recipe.
