I LOVE the combination of peanut butter and banana, almost as much as I love peanut butter cookies! SO, I decided to combine the two loves and make one deliciously decadent sweet treat that won't make you feel healthy-but it will certainly make you happy :)

Method:
Bake

Ingredients

1 pkg
banana pudding
2 c
cold milk
1 c
peanut butter (creamy)
1/2 stick
crisco shortening stick
1 1/4 c
light brown sugar
3 Tbsp
milk
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1
egg
1 3/4 c
flour
3/4 tsp
baking soda
3/4 tsp
salt
hot fudge (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 375* Prepare pudding as instructed on box, set aside in fridge.
2Combine peanut butter, Crisco, brown sugar, milk, vanilla in large bowl and beat on medium speed until well blended. Add egg, mix til blended.
3In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to wet mixture until JUST blended.
4Spray a cookie sheet with non stick spray. Depending on how big you want your sandwiches spoon out the dough onto the sheet. (I did about a teaspoon for each individual cookie, so there would be more sandwiches. Make sure you make an even amount however, or there wont be an even amount of sandwiches!) Bake 7-8 minutes, one pan at a time.
5Remove from oven and place cookies onto a cooling tray. Spoon a teaspoon (or a 'dollop') of banana pudding onto a cookie, top with another cookie, and spread with hot fudge if desired. Repeat until all cookies have been used! ENJOY TIMES A MILLION!
