Cream cheese cookies filled with chocolate cookies, topped with cream cheese frosting and more chocolate cookies.
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat.
In the bowl of you electric mixer cream together the cream cheese and butter. Add in sugar and mix until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla extract and egg. Slowly mix in flour and salt.
Add the whole Oreo cookies and turn your mixer on medium speed for about 30 seconds. The paddle attachment should break the cookies up perfectly. If you are not using a KitchenAid or other stand mixer, you can break the cookies up by hand before adding them into the cookie batter.
Carefully roll 1-inch balls of dough. If it is too sticky, add a bit of flour. It will be a bit messy but you should be able to roll it into balls. Place balls on the cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Flatten each cookie ball with the palm of you hand onto the cookie sheet. These cookies do not spread on their own. You need to give them a press to get you desired shape. Otherwise you will have cookie balls.
Bake for 12 minutes or until bottoms are starting to get golden. Then remove them from the oven and allow cookies to cool.
Meanwhile, for the topping, in an electric mixer beat cream cheese, salt and confectioner’s sugar. When it is smooth, frost tops of cookies using an offset spatula or a piping bag. Dust each cookie with Oreo crumbs.
