Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Is there any person out there who doesn't love chocolate & peanut butter combined?? I can't imagine that there is. Especially when it combines SOFT chewy peanut butter cookies and gooey chocolate in between. These cookies were easy to make and look/taste perfect...

-1-1/4 c. reduced-fat smooth peanut butter
-3/4 c. packed light brown sugar
-1/2 tsp. baking soda
-1 egg
-1 tsp. vanilla

For Chocolate Filling:
-1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
-4 tbsp. butter, cut into two pieces
*Makes ALOT of chocolate filling; can most likely cut this amount in half

-Heat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper
-In a large bowl with a hand mixer, beat peanut butter, brown sugar, and baking soda at medium speed
-Add egg and vanilla at low speed
-Shape level tablespoonfuls of dough into 1 inch balls and arrange 1-1/2 inches apart (Don't press them down)
-Bake one tray at a time until puffed and cracked slightly (About 12 minutes)
-Transfer the cookie tray to wire rack for 10 mins.
-Make the Filling -- Melt chocolate chips and butter with a double boiler or in the microwave & let cool for 20-30 minutes
-Add a spoonful of the chocolate filling onto the flat side of a peanut butter cookie and top with another peanut butter cookie, flat side facing the chocolate; repeat with the rest of the cookies
-Let sit for at least 20 mins. or so before DEVOURING.

Before mixing....
