Peanut Butter Whopper Sandwich Cookies

My friend Kim got me hooked on where I have found many new recipes that I can't wait to try. Last night I gave these cookies a shot and they were awesome. We love them and will definately be making them again. Not only do they taste amazing, but they look great as well.

1 stick softened butter*
½ cup Peanut Butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
3.5 oz container Peanut Butter Whoppers, coarsely crushed
sugar for rolling
1 container whipped vanilla frosting (or a homemade frosting of choice)
1 big handful of mini marshmallows, cut in half the long way
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a stand or electric mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla until well combined.
2. Place flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl, stir to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients on low speed, then add whoppers until just combined.
3. Scoop dough with a cookie scoop, roll into sugar then place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cooked but still soft.
4. Stir the frosting and cut marshmallows in a medium bowl, spread between 2 cookies and Enjoy!

*I always substitute butter flavored shortening for the butter in my cookies. Just remember to add 6 tsp. water for every 1 cup of shortening substituted.
