Shortbread Creamy Nutrella Filled Cookie Sandwich

Ahh, nutty and chocolate Nutrella.  What's not to like?  Add a couple of ingredients to Nutrella for a cookie filling for the simple shortbread cookie sandwich.
Let's start with a quick shortbread type cookie.  This recipe was my Grandmother's for her cookie "gun."  She use the recipe as a Spritz cookie in that old school cookie gun.  Gram could hand crank that old gun and had trays ready for us to decorate in no time.  Change it up a bit by rolling balls, flatten cookie balls with a glass bottom dipped into sugar and it suits my needs perfect.
Shortbread Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup sugar
Cream these ingredients together.
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
Cream together with other creamed ingredients.
2  1/2 - 3 cups flour
Slowly add to bowl of creamed ingredients.
Roll into 2" balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.  Flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped into sugar.  Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit 8-11 minutes until done.  Allow to cool.
Nutrella Cookie Filling
1/2 cup Nutrella spread
1/4 cup cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
1- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
splash of milk
Put all ingredients except milk into mixing bowl and cream together.  Use a splash of milk if not creamy enough to spread on the bottom of cookie.  Top with the bottom of another cookie.
Milk or coffee with these?
