Surprise Zookies
(Crisp peanut butter cookies with apple butter filling)

1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
Jar of apple or other fruit butter

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in the shortening and peanut butter until it resembles coarse meal. Blend in the corn syrup. Place dough on waxed paper and shape into a long even roll 2 inches in diameter. Cover with the waxed paper and chill about 1 hour.

Cut into slices about 1/8 inch thick. Place half the slices on ungreased baking sheet(s). Put 1/2 tsp apple butter in the center of each, then cover with the remaining slices. Seal the edges with a fork.

Bake at 350 for 15 to 18 minutes.

Makes about 2 dozen.
