You can decide whether this copycat recipe for chocolate cookies to make sandwich cookies is better than the real thing?
A vanilla cream cheese frosting to go between Faux-reo cookies.
So yummy! Only problem is that I eat way too many of them!
These cookies are wonderful if you can look past the shortening and butter requirements from the frosting. DON'T THINK ABOUT IT!! When putting the dough on the sheet make them about the size of a nickel. Made 78 cookies. Faux frosting is great with this cookie. This is a great cookie to make for cookie exchange parties because they are easy to make and since you make small size cookies it is easy to come up with 7 dozen. Delicious.
This is about the best frosting I have ever tasted! I think I will try it on lots of things- It would even be yummy between graham crackers. My butter and cheese were about room temp and I had to add a little splash of milk. Frosting was thick and I piped it on FAUX-REO cookies in a ziploc bag with the corner cut out.
Exactly what I needed for my oldest boy's birthday cake. I did add a little more vanilla, but that's a personal preferance. My husband said that this was pretty darn close to the real thing. EDITED: I have to agree. This filling is in-sane. NOTES FOR ME: 24 servings would be just right for a filling between two layers of cake.

These make a pretty plate of Valentine cookies if you use different sized cutters and tint the dough in a variety of pink to red shades.
