Oatmeal Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies  Print

Most everyone has their favorite Girl Scout cookie; I’ve certainly had my favorites over the years (frankly, I wouldn’t turn any of them down…), but the one that’s stood the test of time is the Do-si-do. Those yummy cookies with the creamy peanut butter filling sandwiched between tender oatmeal cookies somehow keep going in my mouth one after the other. These Oatmeal Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies are a copycat of those wonderful Do-si-dos, but they’ve been made without refined sugar; which, despite the abundance of butter and peanut butter, still makes them more healthful than the original version. When you’ve depleted your stash of Do-si-dos, this recipe for Oatmeal Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies will be waiting for you, calling your name….
