the creamy filling

Brace yourself: the mystery behind Camden's birthday dessert is about to be revealed.
Nope, it's not ice cream. Sandwiched between these gigantic chocolate chip cookies is a ridiculous amount of the following deliciousness:

Cream Cheese Buttercream (sounds super creamy, huh?)

6 oz. softened cream cheese

half a stick of softened unsalted butter
box of powdered sugar

1 T. good vanilla
pinch of salt

Dump in your mixer and blend until smooth and... creamy!

Perfect piped or plopped on just about anything. I have actually spread this on a piece of french bread for a late night snack. Better than butter!

And there you have it. Creamy chocolate chip cookie sandwiches.

In related news, I am officially raising a baked goods snob. Chloe had her end-of-the-year class party today, aka pizza & cake. Her response when I asked her how it went?

"UGH. I had ONE bite of the cake. It was one of those cakes you get at the store. Gross."

I have no idea where she gets it.

Mmmmm - that looks so good!
I could go for a big dollop of
that on a graham cracker
right about now.

And I love that she's
a mini cake snob.
That just means you're doing
your job.

This sounds so delicious, is it wrong I want it for breakfast? And I totally agree with your girl, store bought cakes are pretty gross, homemade is the way to be!
