How do I make homemade Nutter Butters?

Homemade Nutter Butters

Love the taste of Nutter Butters, but hate all the processed chemicals in them? Homemade Nutter Butters are incredibly simple to make at home.


- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 egg yolks
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour

- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Mix together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and vanilla from the cookie ingredient list. Using a mixer on medium speed, slowly add the egg yolks one at a time. In a separate bowl, mix together the baking soda, flour, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture with the mixer still on medium speed. Blend until completely incorporated.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Carefully roll out the cookie dough flat using a rolling pin. (If it is too soft, place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to stiffen it up before rolling out.) Use a small cookie cutter to cut out the circles. Bake the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet for 10 - 12 minutes. Cool completely.

Combine all filling ingredients. Place in a piping bag. Add filling on one side of one peanut butter cookie. Add a second cookie to create the "sandwich" and repeat with all remaining cookies.
