Reese’s Pieces Cookie Sandwiches

The last few things I’ve made (the Sweet Zucchini Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and the Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes) were a huge flop with Kid. He licked the cream cheese frosting and gave me a look like WhatTheFuckIsThisShit. The mint frosting didn’t fair any better.

So I made these just for my son.

In large bowl, cream shortening and butter. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, alternating with milk. Mix in peanut butter.
