If there's anything we stand to learn from National Homemade Cookie Day, it's that there’s only one thing better than a freshly baked cookie: Two freshly baked cookies with buttercream in the middle. Chances are, you’ve known such glorious creations all your life, first as Oreos and Nutter Butters, and later as fancier-than-thou macarons — but now, you know them by their true name: The sandwich cookie.

It’s a simple concept, really. You don’t have to be a molecular gastronomist to take a dessert we love, smother it in something buttery, and call it a day. All the same, the sandwich cookie is nothing short of genius: Equal parts crisp and creamy, hearty and delicate, it’s everything we dream of when we dream of cozy fall desserts. And if you have yet to taste its wonders, there’s no better occasion to start than right now on National Homemade Cookie Day. Before you read on, pour yourself a tall glass of milk — you’re going to need it.
