Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

This is another cookie that I like to make for Christmas plates.


* 1 cup butter-flavored shortening
* 1 cup creamy peanut butter
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 3 eggs
* 1 teaspoon Spice Island® Pure Vanilla Extract
* 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 Spice Island® Pure Vanilla Extract
* 5 to 6 tablespoons milk


* In a large bowl, cream the shortening, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition after each addition. Add 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.
