Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the shortening, butter and peanut butter. Add the white and brown sugars; stir until well blended. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time; beating well after each addition.

Using a tablespoon or cookie dough scoop, form dough into 1 inch balls. Arrange dough balls 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Using the back of a fork, flatten & form a crosshatch design on top. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until just lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and cool completely. Prepare the Peanut Butter Filling. Spread filling on half of the cookies and top with another cookie. Store in an air tight container.
