These Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches are so simple, yet so delicious! And you get to eat two cookies at once…Yippee!
Every time I eat a cookie, I say I am going to eat just one. Well, 9 times out of 10, I go back for another because I can’t eat just one. Who can? So this is why I now make my cookies so darn big so that I only eat one when really they are the size of 3-4 small cookies put together.
Well, in comes the invention of the cookie sandwich. It’s brilliant, isn’t it? You grab one sandwich, but you get to eat two cookies at a time.
I was so excited about how these cookie sandwiches turned out. They are so simple, yet so dangerously delicious! Of course, they didn’t last very long since everyone in my family is obsessed with the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. What could be more enjoyable than biting into one peanut butter cookie followed by that irresistible chocolate hazelnut spread and then another peanut butter cookie? Yummy yum yum!
Are you ready to get in on some of this enjoyment? Simple and scrumptious…
It’s as easy as that! Now the question is…Can you eat just one?
