Cookie Butter Sandwich Cookies

  • Yield: 16 sandwich cookies

Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats, toasted
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup cookie butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Filling

  • 6 Tbsp cookie butter
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp milk

Instructions

  1. For the cookies, whisk together flour, oats, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter, cookie butter, and brown sugar in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beating to combine. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Cover dough and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (If cookie dough has chilled overnight, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking). Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 32 (1-inch) balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Spray the bottom of a drinking glass lightly with nonstick spray, then use the glass to flatten dough until 1/4″ thick, approximately 2 inches in diameter. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 8 minutes, until edges are set. Cool for 3 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. For the filling, combine cookie butter and butter in a small bowl and microwave until melted and warm, about 35 seconds. Whisk in powdered sugar, salt, and milk until smooth and spreadable (if filling starts to thicken, microwave briefly and whisk again, or add a splash of milk). Use an offset spatula to spread about a tablespoon of filling on the underside of half the cookies. Top with remaining cookies, pressing gently so that filling spreads to the edges. Let filling firm up before serving. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
