Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

When guests arrive to check into our accommodations, they are offered our famous Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies. I receive many requests for this recipe!

1 Cup butter
1 Cup creamy peanut butter
1 Cup white sugar
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Eggs
4 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
5-6 Tablespoons milk

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add vanilla.

Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.

Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.

Add to mixture in mixing bowl.

Shape into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Flatten with tines of a fork.

Bake at 375 degrees for 5-6 minutes (important that you don't over bake!!).

Remove from oven and leave on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes to allow the cookies to continue absorbing the heat from the cookie sheet. They should be slightly brown on the bottom.

Cool on wire racks.

In a mixing bowl combine and mix the filling ingredients until smooth.

Spread on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie.
