It’s (still) summer in the western hemisphere and that means outdoor parties and bbq’s with friends and family. Parties need desserts and desserts should include cookies. Perhaps you don’t have the time to make a fancy platter of homemade cookie sandwiches . Don’t worry. You can still serve store bought sandwiches that your guests will enjoy.
Sandwich cookies consist of a filling between two cookies. The fillings can include, fruits, creams and jams. Sandwich cookies are ideal for summer parties because their construction make them super fun to eat, they are simple to serve, and they carry a hint of nostalgia for everyone. Of course ice-cream sandwich cookies is a good friend of summer gatherings.
