Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

“Would you like another Nutter Butter peanut butter sandwich cookie?”

Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies were launched in 1969, the cookie has become America’s favorite peanut butter sandwich cookie, pleasing fans with its signature look, shape, and taste through the 70s, 80s, and 90s, and into the new millennium.

With its one-of-a-kind peanut shape, peanut butter biscuit base, creamy and real peanut butter filling, and dual-sided waffle pattern, it’s an iconic piece of design and cookie history. Unless you have a peanut allergy, there’s a good chance you agree it’s the pinnacle of all PB treats.

Americans have been enjoying peanut butter cookies since at least the 1910s. Nabisco is not clear on who actually came up with the famous peanut-shaped design, let alone the recipe for it.
