PB&C Cookie Sandwiches
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  butter, softened
  • 1/2  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  egg
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  cup  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 11  ounce package  peanut butter and milk chocolate pieces
  • 1/2  cup  purchased chocolate frosting
  • 1/2  cup  peanut butter
Directions

1. In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined. Add egg and vanilla. Beat until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour and the cocoa powder. Stir in peanut butter and milk chocolate pieces. Cover and chill dough for 2 to 3 hours or until easy to handle.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Flatten cookies slightly with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until tops are cracked and look dry. Let cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Remove and cool completely on wire racks.

3. In a small bowl stir together frosting and peanut butter. Spread a scant 2 teaspoons frosting mixture on the bottoms of half of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies, bottom sides together.
