Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Delicious. We made no changes. It made plenty so we delivered to 2 sets of neighbors, and still have plenty!

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup butter flavored
shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons milk

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, 1 cup creamy peanut butter and white and brown sugars. Add vanilla and then eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each addition. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add slowly to creamy mixture.

3. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten balls with a fork.

4. Bake for 7-8 minutes depending on size (we did exactly 7). Cool on wire racks.

5. To Make the filling: Combine 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, and milk in a small bowl adding enough milk to make for a creamy, frosting like texture. Spread frosting on one cookie and top off to make "sandwich".

I made these and they were really good. I need advice though. My dough was so soft that I couldn't do the fork thing without smearing it. Any ideas what I might have done wrong? The end results were great. The cookies were super soft and yummy but didn't look very pretty. :)

I'm so glad you tried it! I would suggest refrigerating the dough before you shape it into cookies. Then, let the dough sit out and get to room temperature before you cook them, that way they will cook more evenly.

You need to start taking pictures of your recipes!
