Question: What is better than Girl Scout Cookies?
Answer: HOMEMADE Girl Scout Cookies
That’s right, after searching long and hard I finally found a recipe that not only rivals, but surpasses the original Do-Si-Dos. The Oatmeal Peanut Butter cookies are soft in the inside, and lightly crispy on the outside. And the filling…oh the filling…the filling is literally spot on.
If you are a Nutter Butter, Do-Si-Do, Peanut Butter Cookie, sneak-a-spoonful-of-peanut-butter-before-dinner type, then by golly these are for YOU!
Homemade PB Oat Cookie Sannies (aka Do-Si-Dos)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup quick cooking oats
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2 1/2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1. In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Add egg and beat well.
2. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add these dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Mix only until combined. Add oatmeal and fold in gently to the dough.
3. Using a small cookie scoop, make uniform cookie dough balls (should be about 1 TSBP. of dough). Roll each into a ball and place them onto a greased baking sheet pressing each mound down with the palm of your hand to 1/4 inch thick cookies. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 9-10 minutes, or until cookies are a light brown. Let them cool on the pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
4. To Make Filling: Cream 3 tablespoons butter with the confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, and the cream. Fill the filling into a pastry bag or large ziplock bag (cutting the corner to make a make-shift pastry bag) and squeeze filling onto half of the cooled cookies, then top with the other half to form sandwiches. Enjoy!
