  1. In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 1/2 cup peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Add egg and beat well.
  2. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add these dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir. Add oatmeal and stir.
  3. Drop by teaspoons onto greased baking sheet, and press each mound down with a fork to form 1/4 inch thick cookies. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 minutes, or until cookies are a light brown.
  4. To Make Filling: Cream 3 tablespoons butter or margarine with the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, and the cream. Spread filling onto half of the cooled cookies, then top with the other half to form sandwiches.

Too rich. My husband and I were not a fan at all. Won't be making again.

Everyone loved these. They are different than your ordinary pb cookie. My 2nd batch came out too crispy so next time I will go with 8-9 minutes and chill my dough. I cut down a little bit on the...

These are the BEST!!! I used a melon baller to scoop the dough- helped make them more uniform in size. And for cryin' out loud MAKE THE FILLING!! The cookies are good without it but they're t...

These are the BEST! Wow, very tasty. I baked the cookies for 8-9 minutes, which was perfect. They are sooo soft, even the next day. And you don't need to flatten the cookies because they flatten...
