Soft Nutter Butter (& Jelly) Cookies

I made these homemade Nutter Butter cookies awhile ago, but their soft texture and sweet, creamy filling still linger in my mind. I followed a recipe from Bouchon Bakery that was posted in The New York Times back in December 2006. However, I left out the chopped peanuts from the cookie dough and added a swirl of strawberry jelly to the filling as an homage to the kid-friendly sandwich. These cookies were extremely delicious, and I’m not embarrassed to say that I was not happy about sharing them. To view the recipe, click here.

    I thought it didn’t get any better than a good PB and J sandwich. I was wrong!

    This recipe looks like it make a lot of cookies — a whole pound of butter in the dough alone — and you still minded sharing?

    Ooooh, a whole pound of butter; I drooled just reading the recipe–peanut butter cookies are my weakness (ok, one of my weaknesses).

    My favorite childhood sandwich in cookie form…yum! I’m a fool for strawberry jelly, too.

    I haven’t had Nutter Butter cookies in the longest time. Yours look wonderful. I like that you added a little bit of jelly.

    Adorable!! Such a simple thing to add the jelly, but I bet it made all the difference!!

    Oh friend! These sound amazing! Great minds think alike! I think we both have winners. The best if both worlds- a crunchy PB cream filling and a jelly one go perfect with the cookies! Awesome!

    That you can pull up a recipe from 2006 is impressive. Bouchon Bakery. I remember. And, nutter butters – they look delicious. Wouldn’t these be great with a strong cup of coffee? I’m a dipper. Always end up with crumbs in my coffee. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Whoa, I need to make these as soon as possible. My only problem with nutter butters is that they’re not chewy enough. Problem solved!

    The nut butter looks so smooth and yummy. I love how you added the jelly to make them like peanut butter and jello sandwiches. Lovely looking cookies xx
