Do-Si-Dos (Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies)


2 1/4 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter softened (Note: the original recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of butter but we're watching our figure.)
3/4 cups chunky peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups gluten-free oats (the oatmeal kind)


1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter softened
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine chunky peanut butter and butter in a large mixing bowl. Add brown and white sugars and mix until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and completely mix them in then add in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl sift together the gluten-free flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the batter and mix. Add the oats and mix just until their combined.

In yet another bowl combine the ingredients for the filling and mix well.

Take a small spoon and spoon a small amount of dough onto the cookie sheet for each cookie (when cooked they'll be way bigger than you want.) Bake for 10-12 minutes. Once done let them cool for 5 minutes.

After they've cooled a bit take a small water glass and use the opening of the glass as a cookie cutter. This ensures all the cookies are the same size. Finally take the peanut butter icing you make and spoon a little bit onto the center of a cookie and place another on top to form a sandwich.


This recipe made about 24 sandwich cookies.

Curious - this recipe has no gums in it, xantham or guar, does it require one of these to hold it together? I would think that it would - but I've never made this particular recipe so I thought I'd inquire since you don't have it listed in the ingredients.

In case anyone is really on a roll, I also posted my own recipe for gluten-free Samoas (also known as Caramel Delights, I think). You can find it here:

Hi there, it doesn't have any gums in it, but I'd be interested in seeing if and how the texture would change much if they were included. Shortbread is kind of crumbly even in its gluten-ful form, so I don't think these were too far off the mark in that regard, but I don't think it would hurt to add maybe 1/4th - 1/2 tsp. of xanthan gum to see how it works. Thanks for your comment!
