Enjoy these soft, chewy, peanut-buttery cookies warm from the oven.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter, divided
1/4 cup light corn syrup

How to Make It
Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Blend in shortening and 1/2 cup peanut butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Blend in syrup and milk.
Form into a roll 2 inches thick; chill at least 30 minutes. Cut into 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange half the slices on ungreased baking sheets; spread each with 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter. Top with remaining slices; seal edges with a fork.
