  2. Chocolate Sandwich Cookies Recipe

The month of August brings back to school time! I sort of love the idea of a fresh start and new beginning right before the beginning of autumn. My niece is now in first grade so I relish the time I am able to spend with her in the kitchen! And this recipe was the perfect one to share with her before school starts.

These cookies are perfect for school lunches or when friends come over. You’ll be the house everyone wants to hang out at as long as you always have a plate of these on hand.

These freeze well and are absolutely delicious!
