A few weeks back I graced this blog with an out of this world- better than the original- Oatmeal Pie Cookie recipe and now I can’t wait to show you my new favorite- Homemade Nutter Butters. I really didn’t set out to up one on the grocery store snack isle but when it hits me it hits me hard and after watching my 3 year old scarf down his first handful of nutter butters I was determined to make my own. After all my second motto for Kitchen Belleicious, other than “fearless in the kitchen” is “Anything they can make I can make too” and make I did.
They were amazing! Buttery, nutty, creamy, soft, chewy, delicious- PERFECTION! They are like the ultimate Peanut Butter Cookie but with a cute little peanut shape and a decadent rich filling. I love a good crunch and I opted to use crunchy peanut butter in the filling instead of creamy but do what makes you happy. Now seeing as how these nutter butters were such a hit I grabbed a jar of white chocolate almond butter to use for the filling in my second batch of cookies and it was unbelievable. A fancy nutter butter for kids and adults. I promise you won’t be disappointed in these babies. The kids are out of school and what better way to keep them busy and full then to have them help you in the kitchen and fill up on homemade snacks rather than the store-bought versions.
Now don’t get all antsy on me and pop the cookies in the oven once you roll them out- I know your getting hungry but patience is a virtue! This dough must have time to “chill” out in the refrigerator before its oven time or else they will spread and you will be left with these huge weird looking shaped peanut butter cookies. Believe me, I know! Of course you don’t have to make them into the iconic shape they are so widely known for,but seriously- what is a nutter butter if it doesn’t look like a nut? Think about it….. This recipe makes a million nutter butter cookies (small version) so follow my lead and just store your leftover dough in the freezer to whip out a quick snack for the kids. The cream filling only keeps for a week but it also only takes a few minutes to make so don’t let that stop you.
