I've been craving chocolate peanut butter cookies lately. I think it has something to do with the case of peanut butter patties John got from the Girl Scout Cookie sale earlier this month. He's willing to share, but I have to wait until Easter to indulge in prepackaged treats.
I decided to try making sandwich cookies to approximate the flavor. I used the icebox cookie and peanut butter filling recipes from Baking Illustrated (from Cooks Illustrated). Like every other item I've tried from that cookbook they turned out beautifully.
I'm having dinner at John's house tonight. I suppose if he is willing to share his Girl Scout Cookies I should be willing to share my sandwich cookies. The UNI over Kansas win on Saturday as me in such a good mood I just might be willing to part with the peanut butter chocolate deliciousness that is this cookie.
