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. My family liked that better than the original filling in the recipe

These were delicious, but messy to work with after they're baked. The cookies are more like cake and they stick to any surface, even the wax paper.
