Sweet Cream Cheese Spread

It turns out Oreos and cream cheese go together like peanut butter and jelly and it’s addictive. Cookies and Cream Cheese Spread is like a slice of cookies and cream cheesecake, without the effort. It’s a bonus that you get to slather it on your favorite sides making it an easy to serve appetizer or dessert for casual gatherings where everyone gathers around – to devour it! Team effort.

An Easy Oreo Dessert Spread

I’m not a huge fan of Oreo cookies, but I do love cookies and cream. It’s a balanced mix of the two flavors that I’ve even infused into bread. They are always a crowd favorite, so using as part of a delicious sweet spread that’s perfect for entertaining. Serve them up with a platter of goodies to spread and you are on to a winner!

Oreos have their place – and often that’s as a crust to my Peanut Butter Cheesecake.
