Recipe Comments & Reviews

The cookie is also great for using to make Ice Sandwiches. You can substitute any filling and come up with your own special "soft Oreo" type cookie. However, I did make a change to the Peanut Butter stuffing, I skipped the marshmallow creme and added one additional tablespoon of butter.
