Cinnamon-Caramel Sandwich Cookies
You know the phrase “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”? Well, that’s the situation with these cookies.
The cookie portion of these sandwich cookies is a simple vanilla cookie with a good dose of cinnamon. The filling is a cream cheese frosting flavored with store-bought caramel sauce. Both are very good on their own. Put those two things together, though, and you’ve got a wonderfully delicious cookie sandwich.
There’s just something about combining all that caramel with cinnamon that makes these irresistible. Honestly, I had a pretty good idea that these would be good, but I wasn’t quite prepared for just how much I loved them.
You’ll want to use a thick caramel sauce for making the frosting to get the right consistency. For something just a bit different, try using dulce de leche. Either one is just lovely spread between these cinnamon cookies.
