I have a number of recipes for peanut butter cookies and this is a delicious addition to my collection. We really liked the creamy filling sandwiched between the cookies.

  3. Add egg and vanilla and beat till combined.
  4. Add flour mixture and mix till smooth.

  6. Press cookie with a fork dipped in sugar, the dough is soft, I double dipped the fork.

  8. Remove from oven, place on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

  6. Four years ago I developed a deadly peanut allergy. Truthfully, I think I just ate too many. So my eternal LOSS is not being able to eat these. But I LOVE them.
