Peanut Butter Biscuits and Fluffernutter Biscuit Sandwiches

I took my son up to London on Tuesday for a Pizza Making Session at Fire & Stone in Covent Garden to celebrate the launch of the My Daddy Cooks recipe book.  While I was up in Covent Garden, I could not resist the opportunity to pop into Cybercandy on Garrick Street to purchase some American Candy and Marshmallow Fluff.  When we got home, I raided the cupboard to make sure I had the ingredients I needed, and this morning, I came up with this recipe, which makes 40 biscuits or 20 biscuit sandwiches.

The Peanut Butter Biscuits on their own are egg-free, however the addition of Fluff to buttercream frosting to produce the filling for the cookie sandwich introduces egg products. Marshmallow Fluff can also be purchased from American Food Direct,  Amazon and occasionally from Asda.

Peanut Butter Biscuits

  • 250g very soft Unsalted Butter
  • 3 heaped tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 130g Icing Sugar
  • 55g Cornflour
  • 230g Plain Flour

Fluff Buttercream Filling

  • 100g softened Unsalted Butter
  • 200g Icing Sugar
  • 2tbsp Milk
  • 100g Marshmallow Fluff

First, put the softened butter and peanut butter into a bowl.

Mix until completely combined.

Dump in the icing sugar, flour and cornflour.

And mix until you get a soft dough.  This is such a quick and easy biscuit recipe, with no sifting required!

Measure out the dough, using a tablespoon measuring spoon, roll into a ball, and then place on a baking tray lined with a silicon sheet.  Each ball should be a level tablespoon of dough.

Press the dough down using the tines of a fork.

Bake in a 180degree oven for 15 minutes, turning the tray after 10 minutes to ensure even baking, and then place on a wire rack to cool.

Fluff Buttercream

To make the Fluff Buttercream filling, cream together the softened butter, icing sugar and milk, and then add in the Marshmallow Fluff.

Mix gently until it is all combined into a soft, fluffy frosting.

Spoon the frosting onto the back of one of the Peanut Butter Biscuits, and then sandwich another biscuit on top.  Refrigerate to firm up the frosting.

Either Plain….

or with the Fluff Buttercream Filling making a Fluffernutter Biscuit Sandwich, these biscuits are a winner – even my Mum, who isn’t keen on peanut butter, went back for more!
