Homemade Nutter Butter Cookies


The filling is a little hard to spread nicely so my presentation isn’t very lovely. Tasted great though!
I love anything with peanut butter, and these definitely have plenty of that!  




1 c butter flavored Crisco
1 c creamy peanut butter 
1 c sugar
1 c packed brown sugar
1 t vanilla
3 eggs
3 c flour
2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/3 c milk   
Additional white sugar for rolling 

Filling:
1 c creamy peanut butter
1/2 c butter, softened
4 c powdered sugar
2 t vanilla

6 Tbs milk



Cookies:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream shortening, peanut butter, and sugars together until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Add in vanilla, and eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt and add to dough. Mix to combine. Add milk until dough is soft enough to roll into balls without crumbling.
 
Roll dough into 1/2 inch (or a little larger) balls, roll in sugar, place on ungreased cookie sheet and use a fork to make the design on top.
 
Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until puffy.  You do not want them to be golden brown or overcooked.
 
Filling
Beat peanut butter, butter, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Add milk until desired consistency is reached.  When cookies are completely cooled, spread a layer of frosting on one side and sandwich together.
yield: about 4 dozen sandwiches
