Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I would use more)
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 to 6 Tablespoons milk

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Add vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to mixture in mixing bowl.

Shape into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten with tines of a fork.
Bake at 375 F (350 F for dark pans) for 5 to 6 minutes (don't overbake). Cool on wire racks.

In a mixing bowl, combine and mix the filling ingredients until smooth. Spread on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie.

Yields: 5 dozen.
