These cookies are yummy! The peanut butter cookie by itself is good, very moist. I used half margarine & half shortening for my dough. Adding the peanut butter flavored filling between two cookies just makes them even better.

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
1 cup butter-flavored shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar
3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

FILLING:

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

3 cups confectioners' sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

5 to 6 tablespoons milk


In a large bowl, cream the shortening, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well.


Shape into 1-in. balls and place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten to 3/8-in. thickness with fork. Bake at 375° for 7-8 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire racks to cool. 

For filling, in a large bowl, beat the peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie. Yield: 44 sandwich cookies.
