  2. Add vanilla.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.
  4. Mix together flour, baking soda and salt.

  6. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets.

  10. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth.
  11. Spread on one half of cool cookies and top each with another cookie.
