Tried this a few days ago. Baked the cookies one day, and made filling & filled them the next day. I think I'm missing the flavor butter would bring to the cookies, so next time I'll try half and half butter & shortening. (I always use Jif..best taste!) I made the balls of dough pretty small...maybe 1"...then barely flattened a bit, and this worked well. Filling worked well in the micro with my 'melt' setting. Tried spreading the filling, but what worked GREAT was to roll the filling into little balls (it is NOT sticky, surprisingly!), place the filling ball on cookie and flatten slightly, then put the other cookie on top and wiggle it into place. Then you have a nice, neatly filled cookie that looks like the one in the photo! This made a lot - I did not count them - and they are over halfway GONE....and they were supposed to be for Christmas-giving!! Gotta find a hiding place for them.....!
