Peanut Butter Oreo's

I did it! I made cookies every week for the whole school year! I set a goal at the first of the school year to try and make cookies for my kids more often. That's when we decided on COOKIE MONDAY! It has also been a great time for Lexie and I to do something together. Lexie knows what ingredients are what and how to put them in the mixer. Brindley and Karissa even got to where they would walk in the door on COOKIE MONDAY, smell the air, then try and guess what kind of cookie we were making.....With that, here is this week's COOKIE MONDAY recipe.
Taken from Allrecipes.com

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup butter flavored shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons milk

Directions
1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
2.In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, 1 cup creamy peanut butter and white and brown sugars. Add vanilla and then eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each addition. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add slowly to creamy mixture.
3.Shape into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten balls with a fork.
4.Bake for 7-8 minutes depending on size (I tend to keep a close eye on them and remove them as soon as they start to get golden. This helps to make them chewy.) Cool on wire racks.
5.To Make the filling: Combine 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, and milk in a small bowl adding enough milk to make for a creamy, frosting like texture. Spread frosting on one cookie and top off to make "sandwich".
