Peanut Butter Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies

Ooey and gooey pumpkin spiced marshmallow sandwiched between two decadent peanut butter and pumpkin flavored wafer cookies…chewy, rich, and perfect as a fall time sweet treat.Peanut butter pumpkin sandwich cookiesGrowing up I ate the same exact thing for lunch every day – a peanut butter sandwich. Just creamy peanut butter spread between two slices of white bread. No jelly, no marshmallow, no honey, and no banana. None of that condiment funny business – plain Jane only! I ate that from first grade through to my senior year of high school, talk about boring! Well, I am happy to say that my sandwich preferences have changed a bit since my grade school days. Although I will admit I still adore my beloved peanut butter. But I think I’ve finally created a sandwich combination that can please both a 1st grader palette and an adult palette alike – peanut butter pumpkin sandwich cookies. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a sandwich when it’s made from cookies?

For the Cookies
  1. 3/4 Cup creamy peanut butter
  2. 1/4 Cup pumpkin puree
  3. 3/4 Cup white sugar
  4. 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  5. 1 Egg, beaten
  6. 1 Tsp. baking soda
  7. 1/2 Tsp. pumpkin pie spice
For the Filling
  1. 2 Cups marshmallow fluff
  2. 1 Tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer, blend sugars with pumpkin, peanut butter, and pumpkin pie spice until well combined. Add in beaten egg and baking soda until uniform consistency is reached. Spoon teaspoons of dough onto greased baking sheet, spaced two inches apart, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool completely. In a medium-sized bowl combine marshmallow fluff with pumpkin pie spice. Using a spatula, dollop a tablespoon-sized amount of marshmallow filling onto the center of one sandwich cookie. Don't worry about spreading the marshmallow filling over the entire cookie, once you put the other cookie on top, the filling with spread out naturally. Assemble the rest of your sandwich cookies, store in an air tight tin or container and enjoy.

I know that you’re not supposed to eat raw eggs, but once that egg is mixed into a delicious, sugary batter all bets are off! The batter is freakin’ yum. But once the cookies are baked and slathered with gooey pumpkin-spiced marshmallow they become irresistible. They’re a bit messy, but worth it. Pinky promise 😉 Bonus: they’re gluten-free!

Thoughts??
Creamy or chunky peanut butter?
Best time to eat a cookie? There’s no bad time for cookies, but they’re perfect straight out of the oven!
