Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

1 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar (Firmly Packed)
2 Eggs (Large)
1 cup Peanut Butter (Crunchy Style)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3 cup Unbleached Flour (Sifted)
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt

For filling:
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (Crunchy)
3 cups powdered Sugar (Sifted)
4 tbsp Milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract

Cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar in mixing bowl using an electric mixer set at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after adding each egg. Beat in peanut butter and vanilla extract. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt and stir into creamed mixture. Form mixture into 1 inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Press dough down with fork, making a criss cross pattern. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about 8 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove cookies from the cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. When cooled completely, spread each cookie with peanut butter filling and top with another cookie to make a peanut butter sandwich cookie. For peanut butter filling, mix together all ingredients in medium bowl and beat with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth.
