Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies

While watching a recent episode of Criminal Minds I learned that people identify most with the music they listened at the age of 14. I guess that explains why I know the lyrics to so many Ace of Base songs. And why I think Meatloafs I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) is one of the greatest car singing songs of all time. 1994 was a good year in music. Remember this classic? (please note the Habs jersey in the video)

Despite some awfully cheesy songs , I really do identify with the music from that year. I spent hours listening to The Cranberries, Melissa Ethridge. I think I had that Lisa Loeb song on repeat for a good 6 months (taped off the radio of course, with the inevitable announcer’s voice cutting into the song). And I’m still looking for a man like the one Salt-n-Pepa kept singing about.

This all got me thinking about the types of food I identify with and when those connections were made. My taste in food, like my taste in music, has changed over the years. Some foods I’ll always love though, and those loves were forged way before my 14th birthday. Grilled cheese sandwiches, my moms pancake soup, stuffed vine leaves (random, I know).

Cookies and Milk

And, of course, cookies. As a kid I would have told you that the classic chocolate chip cookie could not be beat, but I would have been wrong. All you need to take chocolate chip cookies to the next level is a little peanut butter, another childhood favourite. If you want to make them out of this world, just sandwich some chocolate and peanut butter filling between two cookies. I made these for the Super Bowl under the guise of “go big or go home”, and they did not disappoint. The cookies should be a little chewy, so be careful not to over bake them or they’ll get too crisp. The recipe makes about 36 cookies, or 18 sandwiches. Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit.

  1. Those cookies look amazing! I love your photos. Ace of Base was the very first tape I ever bought, so needless to say I feel a deep connection with them as well. :-)

    • Pancake soup is something my mom always makes when I’m not feeling well. It’s basically chicken soup with sliced up crepes instead of noodles. I’m not sure if it’s a Polish thing or just something she came up with. I love it, I’ll have to post about it one day.

  2. I know this isn’t the object of your post… but wow that glass of milk looks good next to those cookies! I love the music memories as well…tee hee… tootsie roll.

  3. That completely explains why my heart and soul will always belong to Nirvana. And these cookies looks amazing. Two completely separate thoughts in one comment :)

  4. I thought these cookies looked delicious. So I made them. Quite possibly the worst cookie I’ve ever had. (and yes, I triple checked that I followed the recipe)

  5. Oh, you got me all 90´s nostalgic here! Cranberries, and Lisa Loeb – I´d almost forgot about her! Your cookies look absolutely divine – I partcularly love that you´ve sandwiched them! ;) And cookies are a favourite of mine too!

  6. I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this site.
    I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts by you in the future as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my very own blog now ;)
