Lee Ann Miller’s Triple Treats!

Ohio winter can tempt me to yearn for those warm summer days. So, to beat those winter blues I can’t help but make big batches of soup, creamy pasta and irresistible cookies. Really, what’s better than a roaring fire and a fresh-out-of-the-oven cookie?

We live smack-dab in the middle of Amish Country. My husband was raised in an Amish home and is an easygoing man. His palate is simple; a good cookie puts a childlike grin across his face. The Triple Treat sandwich cookie is one of his favorites.

Here are a few tips when you bake these little gems. Don’t overbake them- a touch golden is okay, but not brown. The filling is going to be almost like frosting. You don’t need a lot of filling, just enough to put them together like a sandwich. I also like to store these cookies in a sealed Tupperware type container.

Oh! One last thing: Pour a cold, tall glass of milk to eat with these glorious cookies.

 TRIPLE TREATS

1 c. butter, melted
1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 c. peanut butter
1 t. vanilla
2 t. baking soda
1 ½ t. salt
1 ½ c. chocolate chips
3 c. flour

 

I have a feeling these cookies are called “triple treats” because 2 cookies are held together with 1 fabulous filling! That’s my kind of sandwich!

FILLING:
½ c. peanut butter
1/3 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
3 c. powdered sugar

 

In a large mixing bowl, mix butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Then, beat in eggs and peanut butter. Add in vanilla, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips, and flour. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. When cool, put filling in between two cookies. For filling, add milk to powdered sugar; mix well. Add peanut butter and vanilla.

**This batter will be oily- don’t let that scare you!**
