Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Sandwich Cookies

Because Mondays (for most people) generally suck I thought I’d share with you all a dessert/midnight snack/breakfast-on-the-go that makes me smile.

I’m in love with these sandwich cookies. (Or is it cookie sandwiches?)

They’re simple and sweet.

Just like me. 😉
