Fluffernutter Cookies

DSC_0381
Raise your hands if you ate fluffernutter sandwiches as a child. Now raise your hands if you eat them as an adult. I am guessing that like me, not so many grown ups whip themselves up a peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich. These cute little cookies are the dessert version of fluffernutter sandwiches. Peanut butter thumbprint cookies filled with marshmallow fluff. They are messy and sticky but so much fun. I made them when we had friends over for dinner last week and someone said, "ooh they taste like toasted marshmallows". Toasted marshmallows on top of peanut butter cookies - yep that pretty much describes these babies. Make them today for a flashback to youth.

Fluffernutter Cookies
From Two Peas & Their Pod
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
Printable Version
Ingredients
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 small jar of marshmallow fluff


Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray (I used tin foil instead) and set aside. In a medium bowl mix the peanut butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth. You can do this by hand. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until throughly combined. Add the salt and baking soda. Spoon the dough into balls, about 1 tablespoon for each cookie. Place the cookie dough balls on the cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. With your thumb press down the to make a puddle in the middle of each cookie.

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Remove from oven and press down the cookies with your thumb again -- cookies will be HOT so do this quickly. Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 2 minutes. Move cookies to a wire rack and cool. Then take a spoonful of marshmallow fluff and fill the center of each cookie. Try to smooth it out as best as you can - it will settle and spread out on the cookie over time.
