  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and the sugar with an electric mixer.
  • Add the egg, salt and peanut butter and beat until well blended.
  • Put the oats in a blender or a food processor and grind away until they are almost as finely ground as flour.
  • Add the oats and the flour to the mixture and blend well.
  • Pinch out small portions of the dough and roll into 1 inch balls in the palm of your hand.
  • Press these flat on an ungreased cookie sheet so that they form 2 inch circles.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until light brown around the edges.
  • While the cookies are baking, combine the filling ingredients in a small bowl.
  • When the cookies have cooled down, use a butter knife to spread a thin layer of filling on the flat side of a cookie and then press another one on top.
  • Repeat till all the cookies and the filling are use up.
