Raspberry Cheesecake Sandwich Cookies

There are cookies and then there are cookies… we have all made them; chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin blah, blah blah but when we want an oreo or a fudge-o or any kind of sandwich cookie, we all go to the store, right? Well stop doing that and start making these bad boys. This is an incredible cookie, it is basically a high end dessert in disguise.

The base is just a basic cookie dough that I came up with years ago, it’s fool proof and makes a great base for any other types you may want to make later, then I made some cream cheese icing Yum! and finally I finished it with homemade raspberry preserves. You can use your favorite store bought preserves just buy a good quality one. These are way easier than they look and I promise your family will love them!
