Now that I had experimented a couple of times and had a good batch of Swiss Buttercream
I needed to do something with it!
I decided I would make it into a peanut butter filling for chocolate chip cookies. For the cookie recipe I used Martha Stewart's - Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe
|Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies|
For this recipe I used:
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 Cups of All Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
8 Oz Unsalted Butter - softened (hint here)
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Light Brown Sugar - packed
1 Teaspoon of Salt
2 Teaspoons of Vanilla
2 Large Eggs - room temperature
12 Oz Chocolate Chips
Peanut Butter Filling
1 Swiss Buttercream
1/2 Cup of Smooth Peanut Butter

I started by sifting the flour, salt, and baking soda into a medium bowl
and setting it aside.

In a large glass bowl I used my hand mixer
to beat the softened butter until light and fluffy. This took about 5 minutes on high.

Once the butter was mixed, I added both sugars and beat again for another 5 minutes until the mixture was nice and creamy. I stopped a couple of times to scrape down the bowl to ensure everything mixed well.

I then added the eggs and vanilla and beat everything together.

Then it was time to add the chocolate chips. Since the mixture was quite stiff I mixed the chocolate chips in by hand.

I used a #20-1/4 cup Ice Cream Scoop
to divide out the dough. 6 on each lined cookie sheet
. I baked them in a 350˚ oven for about 15 minutes until lightly browned.

As the cookies were cooling, I took the butter cream and peanut butter and beat them together well. I added a generous amount of filling to one cookie and topped it with another. Enjoy!
