Cookie Sandwiches to Eat When One Cookie Just Isn't Enough

We all know two is better than one, but these cookie sandwiches take it a step further by adding a creamy, rich filling between two cookies. Mix and match your favorite chocolate, shortbread, and sugar cookies as the sandwich "bread," and fill in the space between with salted caramel, chocolate ganache, or fluffy marshmallow filling for cookie recipes that are doubly sweet.

Oops, we're sorry. Something went wrong. Please try again later.
