Kim Ima Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies Recipe
Whisk two eggs with two teaspoons of vanilla extract. Add in 2 cups of peanut butter; it’s just peanuts and salt, no extras. Stir these together with a cup of sugar and half a teaspoon of salt. This will gets tough to stir, but Michael Strahan got it. This is the dough.
Scoop the dough and form a patty. Take a fork and press this like an old fashioned peanut butter cookie. Cook this for ten minutes at 325 degrees, depending on your oven.
While these cool, make the filling. Kim makes three types of fillings: peanut butter and peanut butter, peanut butter and chocolate, and peanut butter and jelly. All you do is mix them up!
- Peanut butter filling: 1/2 to 1 cup dark brown sugar and 1 cup smooth peanut butter (no sugar added)
“I’m happy dancing because of the joy I feel when I eat your cookies,” Kelly told Kim. They gave her a plaque for participating in the Truckin’ Amazing Contest.
