Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

Without divulging my age, I was in college when the malls where I live opened.  

My first trip to the mall was with my mother, grandmother, and my grandmother's best friend.  I drove.  It was so crowded that we had to follow someone going to their car to get a parking place.

  I rarely shop in malls today.  I love TJ Maxx and Marshall's, and Old Navy.  And how about H & M?  It's pretty fun!

And I love the convenience of on-line shopping.  You can't beat it.  And the world is at your fingertips!!  

You may wonder what that has to do with these chocolate chip cookies; so, I will tell you.  When I was going to the mall every Saturday to shop, I was thrilled to find the chocolate chip cookie store in the mall, and always, always had a cookie while I was there and a Coke.  That's right, a chocolate chip cookie and a Coke; and I was thin!

I seldom bought the cookie sandwiches, but they had one that was almost bite size.  They called them little dozies or doozies.  I honestly can't remember for sure.  But they were fabulous!

While I tried my very best to make these bite sized, they are more like two or three bites.

They are fabulous, as well.

The cookie is made from a cake mix, and the filling is buttercream frosting.

You can sprinkle red, white and blue sprinkles and have a perfect July 4th dessert.
