How to Make Peanut Butter Sandwich Coookies

Step 1

In an electric mixer: Cream the butter, shortening, and sugars. Add eggs one at a time and mix until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter and vanilla and mix well.

Step 2

With the mixer off, add dry ingredients and mix on lowest speed until just combined, Do not over mix.

Step 3

Use an ice cream scoop to make even size balls of dough and place six on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper about 3 inches apart. Press dough down with a spatula to make about 4 inch rounds.

Step 4

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) 8 minutes and take out of the oven, (the cookies will continue to cook on the sheet after you take them out). Do not over bake. Leave on sheets for 2 minutes before removing. Place on a wire rack and let cool.

Step 5

Whip all ingredients in an electric mixer until light and fluffy, evenly spread 2 tablespoons of filling onto baked underside of a cooled peanut butter cookie, gently press another cookie onto the filling.

Store in an air tight container.
