These Heart Sandwich Cookies have a delicious, not too sweet flavor. They’re crisp around the outside and chewy in the middle.

Of course, the only thing better than a heart-shaped cookie, is a heart-shaped cookie with a white chocolate cream cheese filling. Yum! I can’t resist anything made with cream cheese, and this sweet, blush pink filling makes me so happy.
