Ingredients
  • Cookies:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, plus more for rolling dough
  • 2 large eggs
  • Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
Directions
  • For the cookies: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

  • In the bowl of stand mixer, cream together the butter and chunky and smooth peanut butters. Add the brown and granulated sugars and beat for 3 minutes. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating for 1 minute after each addition. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.

  • Put some granulated sugar in a bowl. Scoop 1/4-cup balls of dough into the bowl, roll the dough in the sugar and transfer to the prepared baking sheets, pressing each cookie flat with a fork. Bake until the edges are golden brown, 8 to 11 minutes. Let cool completely before filling with frosting.

  • For the raspberry cream cheese frosting: Cream together the cream cheese, butter, jam and salt in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add the powdered sugar and beat until soft and creamy.

  • Spread approximately 2 tablespoons of frosting on one side of a cookie and sandwich together with another cookie. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
