    This is a super cookie devised by Linda Weber, Fine Cooking, issue #43. She suggests using a smooth peanut butter. The 'stuff' in the middle is divine!

    For the filling


    1. 1
      To make the cookies: Heat the oven to 350°F
    2. 2
      Line two baking sheets with parchment. In a medium bowl, sift together the two flours, baking soda and salt.
    3. 3
      In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg; continue creaming until smooth and fluffy, about 3 minutes with an electric mixer (longer by hand). Stir in the flour mixture by hand just until it's incorporated; don't over mix or the cookies will be tough. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of batter, spaced about 2-inches apart, onto the lined baking sheets. With floured fingers, flatten each dab of batter into a 2-inch round.
    4. 4
      Bake until the cookies are puffed and golden, 12- 14 minutes, rotating the baking sheets if needed for even baking. Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool.
    5. 5
      While the cookies cool, make the filling: In a small bowl, cream the confectioners' sugar, butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add the heavy cream; continue creaming until smooth and fluffy. Stir in the chopped peanuts and chocolate.
    6. 6
      To assemble: Transfer the cooled cookies to a work surface, flipping half of them over. With an offset spatula or a butter knife, spread a scant teaspoon of filling onto each turned-over cookie. Set another wafer on top of each filled cookie, pressing gently to spread the filling. Store sealed at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

      Smooth might be fine, but crunchy is SOOOO much better, in my opinion, so I did use my ever-present crunchy peanut butter for these ` The more the nuts, the merrier! Other than that, your recipe was strictly followed, & the resulting cookies were ABSOLUTELY GREAT! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Canada on Zaar's World Tour 4]

      These are by far the best-tasting peanut butter cookies I've ever made. The filling, with its nuts and mini chips, is as you say "divine" and I could hardly keep my fingers out of the bowl when putting the cookies together. I'm adopting this one as the family favorite peanut butter cookie. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for ZWT4
