Savory Sunday: Double Peanut Butter Cookies

Savory Sunday


Double Peanut Butter Cookies


Peanut butter is a staple in my family. My son LOVES it and so do (when it doesn't bug my acid reflux). I decided to try this recipe for my Christmas cookies this year. It's different from your normal peanut butter cookies because it is put together like a sandwich cookie with more peanut butter in the middle. I tell you what, if you love peanut butter, you will die for these cookies!

Ingredients
1 1/2 cup Sifted All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Shortening
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Light Corn Syrup
1 tbsp Milk
Additional
Peanut Butter as wanted
Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
2. Sift together all dry ingredients.
3. Cut in shortening and peanut butter till mixture resembles coarse meal.
4. Blend in syrup and milk.
5. Shape into 2-inch roll and wrap in wax paper; chill at least an hour.
6. Slice 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
7. Place half the slices on ungreased cookie sheet; spread each with 1/2 tsp peanut butter (this is the additional ingredient).
8. Cover with remaining slices; seal edges with fork.
9. Bake for about 12 minutes.
10. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing from cookie sheet.
**Makes about 2 dozen**
