Crazy good peanut butter cookies

* I have to give credit to my cute friend Marina for the base of this recipe. The peanut butter cookie recipe is hers and it is amazing on it's own. 

1 c. butter (softened)
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar  
1 c peanut butter
1 t. vanilla                      
2 eggs
2 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 bag peanut butter chips

~ cream, butter, sugars, peanut butter, vanilla, until well blended. Add eggs and blend more.
add dry ingredients and peanut butter chips. 
~ take a good heaping tablespoon of cookie dough and flatten into a disk. leave plenty of space between cookies on cookie sheet. bake in a 375 degree heated oven for about 8 min. *do not overcook or your cookies will not be soft. 

make one batch of vanilla frosting
about 4 cups powdered sugar
1 cube butter (softened)
1 t. vanilla
about 1/4 cup milk.
blend all together well and until light and fluffy. 
divide frosting into two bowls. add about 1-2 T. peanut butter to one bowl and blend.
In the other bowl add about 2-3 T. coco. 
~ frost the peanut butter layer of all cookies first and let frosting set up.
~ Make sure chocolate frosting is thin enough to spread easily and then add it to the top of the peanut butter frosting layer. Enjoy!
