Red Velvet and Oreos are two of the best desserts, so why pick one when you can have both in one delectable cookie sandwich? The homemade Oreo filling never fails to leave a gooey, fluffy, sweet trail around your mouth along with crumbs from the moist, chewy red velvet cookie. Enough of that packaged cookie business, it’s time to get creative.
