I LOVE peanut butter cookies. Not because they’re my favorite cookie (I’m a CCC girl), but mostly because they’re my mom’s signature cookies. So it’s a nostalgia thing for me. She dips them in chocolate at Christmastime, and I always look forward to a plateful at the holidays.

Since we’re in the middle of Tagalongs week, I thought it might be incredibly naughty and delicious to stuff Tagalong cookies inside of a classic peanut butter cookie. Thanks to Jenny, the inventor of the Oreo Stuffed CCC, for the inspiration!

Cookie-stuffing Tips:

  1. Place a small (approx. 3″) circular cookie cutter on your lined cookie sheet. Scoop 1 scoop (using a tablespoon cookie dough scooper) of dough into the cookie cutter.
  2. Press gently to flatten the dough until it reaches the edges of the cookie cutter, forming a perfect circle.
  3. LEAVE the cookie cutter around the dough.
  4. Place the “filling” cookie on top of the 1st scoop of cookie dough.
  5. Scoop a 2nd scoop of cookie dough on top of the “filling” cookie.
  6. Gently press down on dough until it reaches the edges of the cookie cutter, forming a perfect circle.
  7. Remove the cookie cutter and pinch the seams of the dough together. Voila!

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  3. Add eggs one at a time, mixing in between additions. Add the vanilla and salt.

  1. These are the most perfect looking cookies. Yum!

  2. Stuffed cookies are the best! Especially when there’s tons of PB involved :) pinned

  3. Whoa. Those cookies look SO good.

  4. YESSSSSS! so much pb in these amazing cookies! and tagalongs are my faaaaavorite!

  5. You can stuff anything in a pb cookie and I’m all for it! These cookies look awesome! Pinned!

  6. Oh how I wish you would have shared this three days ago … divided up the Tagalongs (so nobody got cheated) and they are gone! I’ll have to chase down my Girl Scout cookie dealer!

  7. OMG I LOVE these cookies!! I am definitely saving my last box of Tagalongs for this recipe! :)

  8. It’s never wrong to stuff a cookie inside of another cookie. Especially because by doing so, you are only eating 1 cookie instead of 2 so it’s totally healthier ;-)

  9. Oh yeah, send some my way please. Yum!

  10. Those look amazing! Such a good idea!

  11. How could you not want to eat 10 of these? They look delicious. Thanks, Ashton!
