I have made homemade Oreo’s a couple times before. Once for Valentine’s Day and another time with a Peppermint filling. The dough comes together in the food processor, and then you just slice and bake. It really could not be easier! Last year a version of cookie dough Oreo’s were available in the stores. I am a fan of cookie dough anything, so I was very excited about this! To me, it had a strong flavor of coffee though, so I was disappointed. I decided to just take matters into my own hands, and make these peanut butter cookie dough sandwich cookies.
The peanut butter cookie dough is egg free, so you do not need to worry about who you are giving it to. Homemade Oreo’s are way better than their store bought counter part. They are not as crispy, but they have a rich real dark chocolate flavor that can not be beat. Plus you can fill them with anything you can dream up! Be sure to add these sandwich cookies to your holiday cookie tray this year. They will disappear quickly!

- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 3/4 up cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup butter , softened and cut into small pieces
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup butter , softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 4 Tbls milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- In a food processor mix together sugar, brown sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add the butter a few pieces at a time, with the motor running. Pulse to incorporate. Add the egg and vanilla. Pulse until the dough starts to form. Turn the dough onto a clean surface. Form into a log/rope that is about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap, and let chill in the refrigerator for 60 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- Remove dough from the fridge and remove plastic wrap. Using a sharp knife, slice dough about 1/4 inch thick. Place dough on a lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes until set and cookies look dry. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
- Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Cream together butter and brown sugar. Mix in the peanut butter, vanilla and milk. Stir in flour and salt until well combined.
- Once the cookies are completely cooled, use a cookie scoop to place a round ball of cookie dough in the center of the cookie. Place another cookie on top, and gently press down. Repeat until all of the cookies are gone. You may have a little extra filling, it depends on how thick you make them.
