PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICH COOKIES LIKE THE GIRL SCOUTS "SAVANNAH'S" (Gloria Pitzer)

Beat 2 c. Bisquick, 2 eggs, 2/3 c. packed light brown sugar, 5 T. peanut butter and 1 T. vanilla together well. Remove beaters and shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten each cookie a little bit with the bottom of a glass which is greased and dipped into sugar. Bake 365° about 6 minutes or til set. Transfer to paper towels. When cool and crisp fill 2 cookies with filling below.

SAVANNAH COOKIE FILLING:
In small saucepan bring to a boil 1/3 c. milk, 1/3 c. dark corn syrup and 1/2 c. packed light brown sugar. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 2/3 c. peanut butter and 1 c. powdered sugar; beat a few minutes on high speed. Spread filling between 2 cookies, using about 1/2 t. filling each time. Apply filling to the flat sides of the cookies when putting them together. Press together gently to let filling come right to edges of the cookies.
(makes about 3 dozen)
