5. While cookies bake, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk with a hand mixer until smooth. Adjust milk for consistency and fill a piping bag with the frosting. Cool cookies completely, then pipe frosting on the bottom of half the cookies.

7. Then comes the heart of our creation – the inside of one cookie gets a generous amount of soft, airy cream cheese frosting. Press another cookie on top, creating a delicious duo.
