    Sackville's Note:

    These are the ultimate rich peanut butter cookie. Definitely not for every day, but great when you want a special treat, maybe for a child's birthday party or a potluck.

      These were great! A classic peanut butter cookie without the filling and an extra special touch with. I used a cookie scoop (like an ice cream scoop but a bit smaller) to make a uniform size/shape for the sandwich halves.

      Awesome! I used the butter, shortening is very disgusting to me. They were soft, lots of flavor (not just sweet) and the batch made a ton of cookies. I didn't fill them because I was making them for a church work day and was afraid they would melt in the heat. But they are GREAT PB cookies to say the least and we make a lot of em around here.
