My Oh My these delicious Magic Middle Peanut Butter Cookies might be too good. With their soft, moist chewy goodness – they’ve made my favorite list.
Oh! My! Gosh! I mean seriously! I think I should rename these cookies to Danger Will Robinson Cookies. They’re sooo delicious they are truly dangerous.
They are soft, moist, chewy, and way yummy! I stashed mine in the back of the freezer hoping to forget about them for a bit. No chance and they’re even fabulous frozen. You have to try these. They have officially gone on my favorite foods of all time list. Bet they’ll go on yours, too.
Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Make Cookies: In a small bowl, blend flour, cocoa, and baking soda.
- In a large bowl beat white sugar, brown sugar, butter, and 1/4 cup peanut butter, until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg, beat until blended. Stir in flour mixture until blended. Set aside.
- Make the filling: Combining the confectioner's sugar and 3/4 cup peanut butter. Beat well with an electric mixer until mixture comes together.
- Roll filling into 30 (1 inch) balls.
- Form the exterior part of the cookie by sectioning dough into approximately 1 tablespoon pieces and then shaping the exterior portion of the cookie around completely around the peanut butter filling balls. Be sure the the filling is completely completely covered.
- Sprinkle 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a shallow bowl. Roll the completed dough ball in sugar.
- Place the balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Gently flatten with the bottom of glass.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes. (I baked mine for 7 minutes). Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool completely.

Thank you! I just made these tonight and they were unbelievable. My husband wants to eat them all. Thank you for sharing.
Christina, I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed them. Thanks for letting me know. Happy Holiday
wow, these look fantastic!
These sound so delicious that even Santa (who's tasted all the cookies in the world), will loosen his belt for these Magic Middle masterpeices.
Man, your blog is soooo bad for my expanding tush, but who cares. I'm more into exercising my mouth and tongue by chewing anyway. Another treat that I'll make and I think my nieces and nephews will like them as well.

I am printing this recipe out right now! My daughter was trying to figure out how to do this and they just would not work. She was improvising, so she could have left out a crucial step and we live at altitude which may have caused troubles, but I am going to have her look at your recipe and try it again!
BTW, all of her flops tasted great!
What a great recipe. My chocoholic side is jumping with joy.
