Caramel-Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies Recipe

Caramel-Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies Recipe

These cookies are more cake-like; a nice change from the more common chewier chocolate chip cookie. I've been known to add a little peanut butter to the filling too. —Lauren Reiff, East Earl, Pennsylvania
