Silky raspberry cheesecake frosting is sandwiched between brownie-like chocolate cookies and the rest is history. These chocolate sandwich cookies are incredibly easy to make and so gorgeous!
So um, we need to have a serious discussion about that pink cheesecake filling, you guys. And the fact that surrounding all sides are chocolate cookies. ???
The simple fact is that I kinda want these for breakfast today because of all those reasons. That’s justifiable right??
Yes. And I want a stack approximately that high, please and thanks. ??
It’s been formally decided that all sandwiches I consume from here on out must be chocolate sandwich cookies with the most gorgeous pink filling ever. Nbd right?
Friends, for how freaking GORGEOUS these sandwich cookies are, there’s no way you’d guess how incredibly easy they are to throw together.
- The cookies! It’s just a simple brownie-like chocolate cookie are the dough mixes up in minutes, no dough-chilling involved, and just straight into the oven and out. Easy-peasy.
- The raspberry cheesecake filling is what makes these babies, honestly. Classic cream cheese frosting gets kicked up with raspberry jam which adds a ton of fruity goodness and PINK.
Smoosh it all together between two cookies and call life very good. ??
I’d definitely say that these sandwich cookies are gift material for your sweetheart, but honestly? If you’re anything like me, you’ll be tempted to just hoard them all to yourself.
I did share these with Jason but keep in my mind that I really didn’t want to. ??
