Fluffernutter Cookies

Posted on February 26, 2016  |  Print Recipe

Soft and chewy peanut butter cookies sandwiched together with marshmallow buttercream.

these are just like a fluffernutter sandwich but in cookie form!!

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a fluffernutter sandwich, but the memories of soft white Wonder Bread slathered with creamy Skippy (most definitely not all natural) and sweet marshmallow fluff are still vivid in my mind. Everything just melded together in one perfect bite with the soft bread and the sticky sweet and salty combination of peanut butter and fluff. How this ever made its way into my lunch box  on occasion I’ll never know (best mom ever?), but I am glad that it did. No turkey, tuna or even the similar but not even close peanut butter and jelly could compare.

Holy peanut butter cookies!!!!!

And while not much could be better than that classic fluffernutter sandwich, these cookies really do get you to that ultimate flavor and texture profile. The peanut butter cookies are just pure peanut butter goodness. They are soft, chewy and uninterrupted. I chose to keep the chips and nuts out of the picture to make it that way. And then the marshmallow buttercream holds it together and the cookies and icing just melt into each other in every bite. If you are looking to have a love affair with a cookie, I’d suggest this one.

Pretty much the best peanut butter cookies ever.
