Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

This recipe tastes like a homemade version of the Nutter Butter cookie~peanut butter deliciousness!
{Prep Time: 30 mins / Difficulty: Intermediate / Yields: 44 cookies}

1 cup butter flavored shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter (not the all-natural kind)
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
5-6 Tbsp milk

1. Preheat oven to 375º. In a large bowl, cream together shortening, peanut butter, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well.
2. Shape into 1/2" balls and place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten to 1/2" thickness with a fork. Bake at 375º for 6-7 mins, or until golden. Place on wire racks to cool.
3. For filling: in a large bowl, beat the peanut butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie.
