Homemade Oreo Cookies

Homemade Oreo's are always a Big hit at our house!
With three boys in the house, they eat these yummy cookies up fast. Let's be honest, I have a few myself.
Two soft chocolate cookies with rich cream cheese frosting sandwiched between.
What's not to love?
This recipe is easy enough to let your kiddos help, if you choose.
A glass of milk will be perfect to go a long side these Oreo's.

Homemade Oreo Cookies

2. In a medium mixing bowl mix all three above ingredients until well combined. Roll into about 1 1/2 inch balls. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 6-9 minutes.
3. Take out and cool completely before adding filling.

Cream Cheese Frosting Filling:
1 - stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 - 8oz package cream cheese
3-4 cups - confectioner's sugar (depending on desired consistency)

2. Spread 2-3 Tablespoons of frosting in between each cookie.

Store cookie's in an air tight container to keep moist.

would this taste good with cool whip in between instead of frosting?

I like cool whip, so I do think that it would taste good. However, the frosting is thicker and sticky so it holds the two cookies together. I don't think that the cool whip would do that. The cookies with frosting do not need to be kept in the fridge, but with Cool Whip I do think you would have to put in the fridge.
Overall I personally would use frosting. Good Luck! :-)
