Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies with Strawberry Marshmallow Cream Cheese Filling
The ultimate PBJ cookies with a delightfully creamy filling!
Serves: 32 sandwich cookies
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • For the filling:
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • ½ cup marshmallow cream
  • 2-3 tablespoons strawberry jam (or whichever flavor you prefer)
  • Powdered sugar, if needed
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Place the butter and sugars in a large bowl and beat for several minutes until fluffy and pale in color. Add the peanut butter and beat for a few more seconds until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat another few seconds until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and, using a rubber spatula, gently fold to combine. Be careful not to over-stir.
  4. Form the dough into 1-inch balls and place them on a non-stick cookie sheet, pressing a grid pattern into them with a fork. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  5. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. For the filling:
  7. Place the cream cheese, marshmallow cream and strawberry jam in a bowl and beat until combined. If the filling is too runny, beat in a little powdered sugar.
  8. Using a butter knife, spread the filling on the bottom side of one cookie and place another cookie on top.
