Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies


I guess you could say I've been on a peanut butter kick lately, first the peanut butter candy corn cookies and now these super, ooey gooey peanut butter sandwich cookies.  Now let me tell ya, this is a cookie!  There is nothing better than the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, add a sandwich to the mix and it's awesome.  

I had been doing a lot of baking lately but none of it was stuff that I was making to stay around the house, so I decided to make some cookies that we would actually keep around the house.  Spencer is a huge fan of peanut butter, and his favorite candy is Reeses cups so this combination was the perfect choice to make and keep around the house.  They were a huge hit for him and everyone else that tried them.

The cookie recipe is one I created a few days ago, so I decided to make this my "staple" PB cookie recipe because the texture, thickness and finished product turned out perfectly.  These cookies stay chewy and moist for quite a while, they didn't get hard like a lot of the cookies do after they cool off.  I had seen quite a few different sandwich type cookies, so I decided to make the ultimate peanut butter sandwich cookie with peanut butter filling.  They turned out awesome, I know I will be making these many more times!  I hope you enjoy.
