Chocolate-Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
Our sandy-crisp, butter-rich chocolate cookies with a rich, intensely chocolaty filling put fake cream-filled store-bought sandwich cookies to shame.
Why This Recipe Works
Chocolate icebox cookies were our favorites for use in our peanut butter sandwich cookie recipe—they have a texture that is tender yet sturdy and a deep, chocolaty flavor. Additionally, because they are sliced from a log of dough, the cookies in a single batch bake up with a uniform shape and size so that the cookies match up and make attractive sandwiches. For the peanut butter filling for our chocolate sandwich cookies recipe, we liked a simple mixture of peanut butter, butter, and confectioners sugar—it had a perfect texture for spooning onto the cookies and was firm enough that it didn’t ooze when a cookie was bitten into.
