Gluten Free "Oreo" Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Cookie Week is coming to an end and I’ve saved the best for last…Gluten Free "Oreo" Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies. Even though “stuffed” cookies made their infamous web debut a few years ago, this stuffed cookie is nostalgic for me.

Gluten Free "Oreo" Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies were inspired by teenage years and my love of Oreos dipped in peanut butter. It was before my gluten-free days and I think it was a concoction inspired by a movie – the original Parent Trap­ perhaps? Nonetheless, this cookie is amazing. A gluten free “Oreo” stuffed inside of a peanut butter cookie = sinfully sweet.

Gluten Free "Oreo" Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

·1 recipe for Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
·12 gluten-free “Oreo” cookies (I used Kinnikinnick Chocolate Sandwich Cookies)

Prepare Easy Peanut Butter Cookie batter according to recipe. Mold the peanut butter cookie dough around a gluten-free “Oreo” cookie, assuring the entire “Oreo” is surrounded with peanut butter cookie dough. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes at 350˚. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes before moving to a wire cooling rack.

Note: These cookies take longer to cook than regular Easy Peanut Butter Cookies. 12-15 minutes should be enough, but keep an eye on them as they may need longer depending on how much peanut butter cookie dough you’ve placed around the gluten-free “Oreo” cookie.

Yield: 12 cookies
