Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies


I serve these cookies at our bed and breakfast to guests when they arrive or as an evening snack. I receive many requests for this recipe and on several occasions when previous guests have called to make reservations, they wanted to make sure we would be serving these peanut butter cookies.

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 tins of a fork. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-6 minutes (important so 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. Yield 5 dozen.
