Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies

Two soft browned butter, chocolate chip cookies sandwiched together with a browned butter cream cheese filling. 
These cookies are yummy alone since they are chocolate chip cookies. Who doesn't like a good chocolate chip cookie.
I have some cream cheese buttercream left over from making a cake for my niece and nephews birthday and I didn't want to waste it.
The best type of cookie for cream cheese buttercream is a chocolate chip cookie.
Browned butter isn't hard to make at all but can be messed up really fast.  When browning you need to keep a close eye and it worth it.
I only use browned butter when I make my chocolate chip cookies and you can tell a difference.
