Better than Oreo cookies? I know, sounds like it can't be true! But these are fun to make too! They are easy. You get to use a mix to get you jump started. They would be perfect cookies to make when you have a little helper!! With a wonderful cream cheese based icing in the middle. We all know that Oreo's are about the center. It has to be both tasty and addicting. These do have a wonderful center. The cream cheese just adds a nice creamy texture.
Now I will give you a word of advice when you make these Oreo cookies. And it's important. Smaller cookies are better! These can be too big to eat if you end up using cookies that are big. Remember, you have two cookies and the filling in the center to try to eat. Keep them smaller! It's kind of like when you serve appetizers. You know how when you have tiny ones, everyone feels perfectly fine to have one or two or six? But, it was a full sized appetizer, there would be no way people would take them. Ooops, I guess that's two pieces of advice :).
Now, before you get started, make sure you let your butter and cream cheese sit out at room temperature for an hour or two. It needs to be soft for the icing. I'm sure most of you know that, but for those of you who don't, you are welcome for that tip.
