|Homemade Girl Scout Do Si Dos|
This recipe is a knock off of Girl Scount Do-Si-Dos. Simply put– peanut butter sandwich cookies. 🙂 A sweet peanut butter filling is sandwiched between two delicious peanut butter oatmeal cookies. These were quick and easy to make and I had all of the ingrdients available in my pantry. Make this for all of the peanut butter lovers in your life.

Recipe originally from Veronica’s Cornucopia
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease it. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugars, and vanilla. Add egg and beat well.
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add these dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and beat until combined, then add the oatmeal and continue beating until incorporated.
Roll teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Press each mound down with your fingers or a fork, depending on the appearance you’d like, to form 1/4 inch-thick cookies. Bake 6-8 minutes, or until cookies have just begun to set around the edges. (My cookies were exactly 1 1/2 tsp each, so if yours are larger, they will obviously require more baking time.) Remove and allow to cool 3 minutes on the baking sheet before removing them to a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough.
To Make Filling: Cream the filling ingredients until well blended. Spread or pipe filling on to half of the cooled cookies, then top with the other half to form sandwiches. Don’t be stingy with the filling–there is quite enough for all the cookies.

I hope you will get a chance to try them! They are yummy!
These are not my favorite girl scout cookie but I made them because my daughter is a gs and I am not OK with asking people we love (or even strangers, for that matter) to buy the chemical laden cookies that gs allows. So instead, we asked for cash donations for her troop and then we made homemade gs cookies as a thank you. I wanted a few different kinds so I used this to round out the selection. And as it turns out, these actually ARE one of my favorite gs cookies…when they are real food! These are delicious. Just the right sweetness. I made mine with all whole wheat flour and organic sugar (which has a slightly molasses flavor because it is less processed). I even just blended that sugar to make powdered sugar. They were wonderful! I did one batch with about half butter and half coconut oil and they also were great (I can't tell the difference). This is a keeper!!!Oh, and I didn't roll out the dough. I used my small scoop from Pampered Chef and didn't fill it completely full, and they were a great size. And the balls were already shaped, I just patted them down with my finger before baking! Thanks again!
Leaning on Grace- So glad these worked out so well for you. Thanks for the comment and for visiting!
