Peanut Butter Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

My Valentine loves peanut butter cookies.  So, today that is exactly what he is getting! 
A whole plate of them, just for Him!!!

Here is the Recipe for you:
1 3/4 cups flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks butter
7 1/2 tbsp creamy or crunchy peanut butter
5 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp brown sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla 
1 egg
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another.  Beat on medium low speed until thoroughly combined. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for 1 - 2 hours.  After chilling, roll out on a floured surface and cut into desired shape.  Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet, at 325* for 15 - 20 minutes or until edges begin to slightly brown.  Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving over to a cooling wrack.

3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter

3 -4 tbsp milk (use more or less to reach desired consistency)
Spread filling on cooled cookies and top with another cooled cookie.  Enjoy with a cool glass of milk.
