Add flour mixture in two batches, alternating with the sour cream, and beating until just combined after each. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full. Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool completely. In a medium mixing bowl mix together the sugars, shortening, peanut butter and vanilla. Beat until creamy.Add the flour and salt. Mix until well combined.Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach the right consistency for either piping or spreading the cookie dough.NOTE: This is cookie dough so the frosting will have a crunchy texture due to the sugar not being cooked. The flavor is GOOD! I just wanted you to be aware of the crunch factor.
