How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • 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.
  • Shape into 1 inch balls (I use the smallest size cookie scoop) and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten balls with a sugared fork, to make a criss-cross pattern.
  • Bake for approx. 10 minutes depending on size, until they just start to turn golden.
  • Cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, until they are set and have flattened, then cool on wire racks.
  • 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.
  • Half dip each sandwich into the melted chocolate, and place on waxed paper lined sheets. Refrigerate until completely set, then store in an air-tight container.
