Peanut Butter Cream Sandwich Cookies

These are soooo good! I made them for Chris and Christopher and was hoping I wouldn't like them. No such luck!

Peanut Butter Cream Sandwich Cookies
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Granulated sugar
1 recipe Peanut Cream Filling

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. In bowl beat peanut butter and shortening with mixer on med. speed for 30 sec. Add brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl. Beat in baking soda, salt, and as much flour as you can. Stir in any remaining flour.

2. Form dough into balls, using a level tsp. each. Place 1-1/2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten by making crisscross marks with tines of fork dipped in suagar.

3. Bake 7-8 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack; cool.
4. Spread one tsp. Peanut Cream Filling on flat side of half of cookies. Top with remaining cookie. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days. Freeze unfilled cookies up to 1 month. Makes 4 dozen sandwich cookies.

Peanut Cream Filling
In medium bowl whisk together 3/4 cup peanut butter, 3/4 cup marshmallow creme and 3 tbsp. milk. Gradually whisk in 3 Tbsp powdered sugar.
Here is the cake, complete and set up at the reception.
It's a relief that it's over but the decorating part is so much fun!!!
