A very rich, very addicting cookie. Tastes best when cookies are stored in a tight container with several pieces of bread at the bottom. You may need a little extra milk to get the filling to the right consistency.

" 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 (I tend to keep a close eye on them and remove them as soon as they start to get golden. This helps to make them chewy.) 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"."
