I love holiday baking! Making holiday cookies might be one of my favorite parts of Christmas… I love to make cookies so much that each year I bring some homemade cookies to friends and family right after Thanksgiving for them to enjoy as they decorate their homes for Christmas!
These peanut butter cookie sandwiches are fun to make and are always a huge hit!
You all know me… I like easy recipes and this one is easy… you just have to make the cookies, and the frosting and then drizzle the chocolate! Perfection!

These cookies will be hand-delivered to friends to kick off the Christmas season! I like to put a couple in some plastic wrap with a huge bow on top and drop them off right after Thanksgiving so that they can be enjoyed as my friends and family are decorating their homes for the holidays.
After my daughters saw these all put together, they have also decided that these will be our cookies for Santa this year. We heard he LOVES peanut butter and chocolate so we are going to be making him a plate full of these!
