this recipe freaked me out a little when i first read it. i tried it anyways and i think it turned out great. my dad is a huge oreo fan and is extremely disappointed if i don't show up with these on xmas. i did find it easier to put the filling on the cookies with a gallon size ziploc and cut a small corner off (or use a pastry bag). also, i thought that the amount was going to be more than i needed (based on the cookie recipe) but it turned out to be just enough.

Very good filling! It was slighty runny at first, but after being in the fridge for about 2 hours, it got a good consistency and kept it. Also, VERY easy to make, no problems at all making this.

Exactly what I needed for my oldest boy's birthday cake. I did add a little more vanilla, but that's a personal preferance. My husband said that this was pretty darn close to the real thing. EDITED: I have to agree. This filling is in-sane. NOTES FOR ME: 24 servings would be just right for a filling between two layers of cake.

It was messy to make, but if you use a deeper bowl to mix, it probably wouldn't be so messy. It was quite tasty, but I'm not sure if I'll make it again. I made it with faux-reo cookies and although my kids said they were good, they only ate a few each. I ended up throwing more than half of them out.

This has become my favorite cookie filling! I love the ratio of cream cheese to butter. You can definitely taste the cream cheese, but it is not too cheesy. If you are really looking for a filling to compare to the filling in an Oreo cookie, use only butter/shortening and no cream cheese. Sometimes I use half almond extract and half vanilla and that is tasty as well.

This is about the best frosting I have ever tasted! I think I will try it on lots of things- It would even be yummy between graham crackers. My butter and cheese were about room temp and I had to add a little splash of milk. Frosting was thick and I piped it on FAUX-REO cookies in a ziploc bag with the corner cut out.
