Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

1 c. creamy peanut butter

1 c. sugar

1 c. packed brown sugar

3 eggs

1 t. vanilla

3 c. all-purpose flour

2 t. baking soda

¼ t. salt


½ c. creamy peanut butter

3 c. powdered sugar

1 t. vanilla

5-6 T. milk

In a lg. mixing bowl, cream shortening, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the cream mixture.

Shape into 1-in. balls. Place 2-in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten to 3/8-in. thickness with fork; making a crisscross pattern. Bake at 375° for 7-8 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to cool on wire rack.

In lg. mixing bowl, combine filling ingredients; beat until smooth. Spread on the bottom of half the cookies; top with remaining cookies.
Don’t forget to taste test!

Yield about 4 dozen.

Rainbow Rice Krispies Treats

Again taste testing is the best part!
