Hope everyone is still enjoying their weekend. It’s been a weekend full of swimming and Birthdays for us and phew it’s getting hot around here!

I got this email from a reader that I thought was so cool, she wrote:

My 13 year old son reads your blog (well more like drools and then prints out recipes for me to make) and he wanted me to write and tell you that A) you have the most awesome cookie recipes ever and B) he wanted to know if you could make a peanut butter marshmallow cookie like a fluffernutter sandwich. So after weeks of bugging me to write you I finally did. We look forward to your next entry.

Best wishes,
Amanda

I would have never thought a 13 year old reads my blog, I think it’s great, so here’s a cookie I whipped up for my 13 year old reader.

I saw these new peanut butter Whoppers at Walmart a few weeks ago and knew they’d be good. What better way to use them than in a peanut butter cookie sandwich!? They give the cookie a great chewy consistency with a hint of malt flavor. I like these cookies just as they are, but the boys love them as the sandwich with the marshmallow frosting.



Peanut Butter Whopper Cookies and Sandwiches

1 stick softened butter
½ Cup Peanut Butter
½ Cup sugar
½ Cup brown sugar
1 large egg
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ Cup flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
3.5 oz container Peanut Butter Whoppers, coarsely crushed

sugar for rolling

1 container whipped vanilla frosting (or a homemade frosting of choice)
1 big handful of mini marshmallows, cut in half the long way

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla until well combined.

2. Place flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl, stir to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients on low speed, then add whoppers until just combined.

3. Scoop dough with a medium cookie scoop, roll into sugar then place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cooked but still soft.

4. Stir the frosting and cut marshmallows in a medium bowl, spread between 2 cookies and Enjoy!
