Recipe: Fluffernutter Cookies

What could be better than a Fluffernutter? I can’t think of any other food that conjures the memories of childhood quicker.
Our town is the birthplace of Fluff and even has a Fluff Festival every year. I got a jar there this year and I’ve been meaning to find a great recipe to use it up on. Each one I’ve found hasn’t quite been what I was looking for though. I figured I’d just keep eating Fluffernutters but then I found a recipe for Fluffernutter cookies!! I majorly tweaked it and the cookies came out perfectly.
Fluffernutter Cookies
1 cup butter (I use Smart Balance)
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 and 1/3 cups AP flour
1 tsp. baking soda
A small pinch of salt
3/4 cup Fluff
One by one, combine all of your ingredients. Smart Balance and peanut butter first (feel free to soften these together in the microwave for a few seconds if the need be):
Then sugar, then eggs, then flour, baking soda, and salt:
Next add your Fluff and fold it in gently:
I scoop my dough with a small ice cream scoop on to a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake on 350 degrees for 12 minutes, rotating once halfway through. If they seem gooey when you take them out of the oven, that’s ok. They will firm up!
These cookies came out light but sweet and peanutty. A perfect nod to the Fluffernutter.
