Who needs Girl Scouts....


Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Things You'll Need:

* 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 1/2 cup peanut butter
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup quick cooking oats
* 3 tablespoons butter, softened
* 1 cup confectioners' sugar
* 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
* 2 1/2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

1. Get a large bowl and combine the cream, 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, both the white and brown sugars and the vanilla. Add the egg and beat the mixture well.

2. Get out another big bowl and mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and the salt. You will then pour these dry ingredients into the creamed mixture in the first bowl. Stir until both mixtures are well combined. Once it's mixed, add the oatmeal and stir until the oatmeal is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

3. With a teaspoon, drop the cookie batter onto a greased baking sheet, then press each of the mounds down with a fork, forming approximately 1/4 inch thick cookies. Put the cookies into a 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes, or until cookies the are a light brown color.

4. While the cookies are baking, you need to make the filling: Cream 3 tablespoons of butter with confectioners sugar, 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, and cream. Sit the filling aside until the cookies have finished baking and are completely cooled. Then, spread the filling on half of the cookies, then place another cookie on top to form sandwiches.
