Sweet Filled Sandwiches

Hooray! After the last three weeks of healthy eating, we are finally back to our favorite Saturday routine, a little bit of baking and whole lot of sweet treat cheating. We’ve realized that no amount of cleansing will weaken our sweet tooth. So this week we are really going for it by creating two types of cookie sandwiches. Brownie crinkle and our favorite Ultimate chocolate chip! But we aren’t stopping there. No sire! Each will be filled with irresistible cookie butter, cookies and cream cookie butter, or chocolate toffee spread. It’s time to fill our tummies with what we crave most. It is Saturday, for goodness sake! We will get back on track on Sunday. That is, until the Saturday rolls around.
