Peanut butter cookie dough, sandwiched between oatmeal peanut butter cookies.
Yes, this recipe will become a favorite, because the cookie dough has no eggs in it!
Oatmeal peanut butter sandwich cookies are addictingly good and totally egg-free. The edible cookie dough in every cookie sandwich is delicious and irresistible. I’d eat it with a spoon if I could (and I did). These chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookies taste great on their own but adding in that delicious cookie dough center really takes them up a notch and makes them perfect for when that cookie dough craving hits!
What are sandwich cookies?
Sandwich cookies are thin cookies that have been baked and cooled. Then a filling is added between two cookies and sandwiches together. The different fillings and cookie flavors can vary greatly from chocolate cookies with peanut butter frosting to red velvet cookies and cream cheese frosting in between. With so many different frostings, fillings, and flavor options for cookies out there, there’s practically an endless sea of possibilities for sandwich cookies.

How to Make Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies

How to Heat Treat Flour
Please note that when this recipe was originally published several years ago “heat treating flour” wasn’t a thing. Meaning that while some people ate it and got sick, the dangers didn’t get a lot of media exposure like some other foodborne illnesses (raw eggs) received. Because it wasn’t talked about or warned about too much, not everyone was aware of the dangers.
It has since become widespread knowledge that consuming raw flour is risky for your health and could cause you to get sick. Therefore to make the filling safer for consumption I recommend that you first heat treat the flour.
- To do this simply take the flour needed in the filling and spread it out onto a baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes and then allow to cool completely before using.
How long are these sandwich cookies good for?
These cookies can be kept stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week and still taste good. I recommend eating them within 3 or 4 days though because after that the cookies become rather soft thanks to the moisture of the cookie dough filling in every sandwich.
Can I freeze sandwich cookies?
Yes, you can freeze these cookies for later if desired. Simply place the cookies on a baking sheet and freeze for about 2 hours until solid. Then transfer them to an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to eat allow the cookies to thaw to room temperature before eating. They won’t take too long to thaw (30 minutes at room temperature should do it).
