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.

These cookies are dynamites! More on the crispy side, but delicious treats!

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I made them as Christmas gifts for the guys and gave them to them tonight. My nephew just texted me and said they are awesome. Merry Christmas

I made these cookies a couple of weeks ago and sent them with my husband for a week-long Jeep trip he was taking with 7 other men and their Jeeps on the Rubicon Trail. He told me the cookies were a HUGE hit and the guys talked about them for days. They absolutely loved them. I made the cookies themselves as shown in the recipe, only adding the large crystal decorators sugar to half the cookies before baking. I used these for the tops of the "sandwiches". I had a batch of buttercream frosting already made to frost cupcakes, so I added peanut butter to the buttercream frosting and used this to fill the cookies. I will definitely be making these again and again!

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.

Delish! Best peanut butter cookies ever! No problem with being too dry, but the filling was a little scant. Still delicious! Thanks!

Very Good for the Peanut Butter Lover! Also Very Rich! As mentioned by Sackville they would be great for special occasion. We could only eat one and thats enough (potentially a good thing I suppose LOL). We had No problem with the dough being crumbly or crispy and I followed the recipe exactly as written. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I am a cookie connoisseur of sorts :) I always appreciate a new twist on a cookie.

These cookies taste great and they are soft. The only problem I had was that the dough is very crumbly. By the end of the batch I had a bunch of small crumbs so I threw the end away. The cookies tasted very good though. Thanks!
