Cookie recipe adapted from All Recipes
Makes about 16 cookie sandwiches
For the peanut butter:
2 cups honey roasted peanuts (yields 1 cup peanut butter)
Grind the peanuts in a food processor for about 2-5 minutes, or until they are creamy and have become a butter.
For the cookies:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
For the filling:
3 tablespoons butter, softened
In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Add in the egg and beat together.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and combine. Stir in the oatmeal.
Use a teaspoon measure to spoon dough onto a greased cookie sheet, and press each mound down with a fork to form 1/4 inch thick cookies. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until cookies are light brown.
To Make Filling:
Cream 3 tablespoons butter or margarine with the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, and the cream. Spread filling onto half of the cooled cookies, then top with the other half to form sandwiches.
