How to make it

  • For cookies:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Beat powdered sugar, dark brown sugar, and butter in the bowl of an electric mixture until well blended.
  • Add peanut butter; beat until creamy.
  • Gradually beat in vegetable oil and vanilla extract, then egg.
  • Add dry ingredients; mix just until blended. Don't overmix.
  • Stir in milk chocolate chips.
  • Drop cookie dough by level tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 1½ inches apart. (I use a baking sheet covered by a Silpat -- makes cleanup almost instantaneous)
  • Bake cookies until puffed and golden brown, about 12 minutes.
  • Cool slightly, then transfer cookies to rack to cool completely.
  • For filling:
  • Place chocolate, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and kosher salt in medium bowl.
  • Bring whipping cream to boil in heavy small saucepan.
  • Pour hot cream over chocolate mixture; stir until mixture is melted and smooth. Don't leave any lumps. You may have to hold the bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water to melt the few remaining lumps, if the boiling cream doesn't do the job.
  • Chill until filling is thick and spreadable, 30 minutes to one hour.
  • Spread about 1 rounded teaspoonful chocolate-peanut butter filling on flat side of 1 cookie.
  • Top with second cookie, forming a sandwich.
  • Repeat with remaining filling and cookies.
  • Note: These cookie sandwiches can be made 1 day ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

    They look stunning - a perfect combination. PITY you can't try them. I'd imagine that a peanut allergy must be hard to live. There's so many products with concealed peanut in it?

    Since I have a peanut allergy, I can't really taste these cookies to see if they came out all right -- I have to rely on other people. Recently, I came across something called Soy Nut Butter in my local Whole Foods. This stuff purports to taste exactly like peanut butter. I plan to test it out on my next batch. Has anyone else tried this variation?
