Oreo Cheesecake Frosting filled Sandwiches

I finally went and saw The Hunger Games this weekend with my book club girls.

To plan any sort of outing with my lady-friends it requires no less than 7 million emails back and forth.

That’s not an exaggeration.  I counted.

Can anyone explain this to me?

Who is riding with who? Who is buying tickets ahead and who is getting them at the box-office?  Are we going to eat dinner?  Where are we eating?  Are we eating before or AFTER the movie?  How early shall we get there?  What time are you picking me up?  What color shirt are you wearing? AHHHHHHHHHHH!

My husband and his dudes plan something and they are able to figure out the plan within a series of grunts.

How do they DO that?

 

Also, I might add if plans aren’t NAILED DOWN you are basically predestined to stand around in the moment looking at each other until someone makes a decision.  The simple question, “Where should we eat?”  sends 10 women into a downward spiral of indecisiveness and awkward eye contact.  At home we’re all email ninjas, shooting our opinions  across the Internets with gusto, but standing around looking at each other in human-form, we all put on our “laid-back”, “go-with-the-flow” costumes and decisions take hours.

I have to say, as much as I love making fun of my friends, I too, succumb to “large group apathy”.  I was right there with them, saying “Makes no difference to me”, “I’ll do whatever”… which we all know that’s a straight-up lie.  I am not in any way shape or form easy-breezy.

 

But yeah, we went and saw the Hunger Games.  Then we ate.  And since no one could decide where to eat, we went to a Diner.  Where I decisively ordered Disco Fries. 

It was a good night.  Love you ladies!

 

Another thing I did this weekend was make cookies.

Cookies that are mixer to mouth in 10 minutes.  Life is good.

Start with some Nabisco Chocolate Wafers…


The magic is in the filling.  You’ve got cream cheese, butter, Oreos and powdered sugar.

Lay your wafers out…

Squeeze on some filling…

And top with another cookie.

Apparently my easy-breeziness manifests in the form of sandwich cookies.  Hey, I’ll take what I can get.

Oreo Cheesecake Frosting filled Sandwiches


Description:

makes 20 sandwich cookies


Ingredients:

  • 40 Chocolate Wafer Cookies (I used Nabisco)
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temp
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 Oreo cookies, crushed

Instructions:

  1. In a mixer, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth, approx 45 seconds.
  2. On low speed add in your powdered sugar
  3. Once all powdered sugar is added, raise speed to medium and beat for 25 seconds.
  4. Turn mixer back down to low and add in crushed Oreos until evenly incorporated.
  5. Transfer filling to a piping bag fitted with a large, open tip, or a ziplock bag with corner cut forming a 1/2 inch hole.
  6. Line 20 of your wafer cookies on a flat surface and squeeze approx 2 Tbsp filling onto each. Top with remaining cookies, forming sandwiches.

Notes:

Store in refrigerator for up to 3 days. You could also freeze for up to a month.
Cookies are best if made ahead and chilled so the cookie has time to soften.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. I saw The Hunger Games this weekend too! And also with my book club girls. What did you think?
    Ps. I can totally relate to lady-indecisiveness. It’s a bit ridonkulous sometimes.
    Pps. One of these cookie sandwiches would totally rock my world right now. I’ll be over in 10, mmk? 😉

  2. OMG. my friends and i are the same. it`s like we`re all too considerate of each other`s opinions so EVERYONE is like, “i`m good doing anything!” XD 2 hrs later and we`re still deciding what movie to watch. LOL

    anyways, these sandwich cookies look lovely!

  3. I try to stick to small groups of ladies or this kind of thing kills me. I just start naming off places and the first one someone says “ok” to that’s the decision. I get grouchy when I’m hungry.

    These look YUMMY. As soon as I have time I am making this frosting.

  4. LOVE it! This post reminds me of 2 of my girl pals and I. Our Husbands are good as long as they bring hunting gear and alcohol. I am not sure of the grunting code for this.

    I am over half way through reading The Hunger Games. It is excellent.

    Thanks for this great post.

  5. Well, first of all, yes. Girl decisions suck. No one wants to just say what they want. I’m the same way and I get all eye-roll-y at myself about it.

    Second, NO FAIR. You can not find those stupid chocolate wafer cookies anywhere around here. I’ve been to every grocery store in the county and no. They do not have these.

  6. As usual, they look awesome.

    And- the reason guys can get together so easily is because they never have to worry about the kids or anything else at that! They are just a different…they don’t worry like we do or feel the need to be so planned out. I wish I could be more laid back like that!

  7. Those look SO good! And where in the world did you find the chocolate wafers? I looked all over God’s Green Earth (well, at LEAST 5 different places) for some last fall for a dessert we love and couldn’t find them anywhere!

    1. shelly

      They are down the cookie aisle at my supermarket. I never thought that they would be hard to find! You could also use graham crackers, I think they make chocolate graham crackers.. that would be good!

      1. Oh, I am so glad you posted this reply! I, too, have been looking for the chocolate wafers and couldn’t find them. I finally decided to just try them with the chocolate graham crackers so I’m so glad to see that you suggested that!

  8. I’m totally even indecisive/apathetic over email. What is WRONG with me? I need to master this grunt phenomenon. Though it would be quite unlady-like.

    That cheesecake frosting filling – to die for.

  9. You know what I love about these? That I can completely control the filling to cookie ratio. Which for me, needs to be about 100 to 1.

    Also, you know that everyone says they don’t care, but the minute one girl makes an executive decision, everyone else is sending an under the table angry text to their husbands. Totally been there.

    I just recently made this filling with cream cheese, cool whip and crushed up chocolate chip cookies! Either way, yum…..yum!! Now I have a different option and I LOVE Nabisco Chocolate Wafers!

  11. I did not know that those chocolate wafers existed. And this filling? Oh my goodness! I will love it, I am sure! We are big fans of cheesecake in my house!
