If your mum isn’t an early riser, you can skip making her breakfast in bed and bake these mouth-watering Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Sandwiches for an afternoon treat instead.
The cookies are sandwiched with a rich cream cheese filling that can be flavoured with whatever your mum likes best – think double chocolate for extra indulgence, or keep it simple with classic pairings like hazelnut or vanilla.
She’ll be delighted with a homemade baked gift and she'll have the day off from the kitchen too.
Peanut butter brownie cookie sandwiches
50g unsalted butter, chopped
250g dark chocolate, chopped
2 eggs, lightly whisked
225g white sugar
30g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
30g cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
Peanut butter frosting
250g cream cheese, softened
15g caster sugar
150g smooth peanut butter

2. Drop half tablespoonfuls of mixture onto trays, allowing room for spreading. Bake at 180°C (160°C fan forced) for 12-15 minutes or until just set. Cool on trays.
3. To fill, beat peanut butter frosting ingredients together in a bowl. Pipe onto biscuits and sandwich together. Refrigerate for up to one week and bring to room temperature before serving.
