#3743 - Oatmeal Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

(by Shirley McNevich)

3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup + 3 TBSP softened butter
1 cup Jif smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup Quaker quick oats
1 cup Domino's powdered sugar
2 1/2 TBSP heavy whipping cream

In a mixer add 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, the white sugar, dark brown sugar and vanilla--beat. Add egg--beat. In a bowl add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt--stir. Slowly add the flour mixture to the mixer while beating. Once mixed, remove bowl from mixer--add quick oats--stir well. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls on to greased cookie sheets. Use the back of a fork (greased if necessary) to flatten each cookie to about 1/4" thick. Bake at 350 degrees 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely. In a mixer add 3 TBSP butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, the powdered sugar and heavy cream--beat until mixed, then beat 2-3 minutes or until nice and creamy. Frost the flat side of one cookie and place another cookie (flat side toward peanut butter) on top. Repeat with all cookies.
