Everyone LOVES these cookies. They all take a bite, then ask me how I got the peanut butter in the middle! If you like that stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth peanut butter feeling, you'll love these!

Peanut Butter Filled Peanut Butter Cookies
2 1/2 cups (12.5 oz) flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup (8 oz) butter
1 cup (7 oz) sugar
1 cup (7.5 oz) brown sugar
1 cup (9 oz) peanut butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Extra peanut butter, for filling cookies (about 3/4 cup or so)

Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together into a medium bowl, set aside.

Cream butter and both sugars. Add peanut butter and blend. Add eggs and vanilla, mix until well blended.

Add sifted dry ingredients, and stir just until flour is incorporated.

Divide dough into thirds, and roll each portion in waxed paper, forming a log about 2 in diameter. Refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours or overnight).

Slice rolls into 1/8" thin slices, and place on cookie sheet, about 2 apart. Use a butter knife, and place a dab of peanut butter onto each slice, then top with another slice of dough.

Make criss crosses on each cookie with a fork dipped in sugar. (If the dough is stiff, and the peanut butter squishes out, set it aside for a couple of minutes, until the dough softens a bit.)

The peanut butter doesn't have to be totally enclosed within the slices - so don't get too crazy about it.

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown all over.
