I am having so much fun recreating my favorite childhood treats and turning them into the most delicious copycat recipes. I hope you guys are having fun following along and are enjoying these recipes as much as I am! Today we are tackling the sweet and salty favorite, Nutter Butters!
What Is In The Middle Of A Nutter Butter?
These delicious cookies are filled with a sweetened peanut butter filling that uses powdered sugar. The peanut butter on its own can be used as a filling if you’re looking for a “healthier” alternative in recreating this recipe but to have true copycat cookie results, I recommend my sweetened peanut butter filling below 🙂
How To Make Copycat Nutter Butter Cookies
The key to making homemade nutter butter cookies is most importantly the overall flavor of the cookie which, if you follow this recipe to a tee, will be spot on. The second most important factor to this copycat nutter butter cookie recipe is the shape and pattern of the cookie. This cookie has a classic peanut shape and cross-hatched marks on the cookie. Use the images below to help guide you. I used a fork to make the classic criss-cross pattern on top of each cookie.
You can use this recipe in the future as a delicious, regular peanut butter cookie without the appearance of a nutter butter cookie. The cookie dough, the way they baked, and the overall taste show just how classic and mouth-watering these cookies are.
If you feel intimidated over recreating the nutter butter shape you can simply keep these cookies rolled into balls and then make them simple peanut butter sandwich cookies without the “fancy” shape.
