Nutrition: Nutritional values may vary based on cookie option (nutritional info shown for Chocolate Chip cookie version).

Cooking Know-How: Let cream cheese stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 min. Soft cream cheese will make the creaming process easier.

Enjoy A Frozen Dessert: To serve as a frozen dessert, cover each dessert with plastic wrap. Freeze at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove from freezer 15 min. before serving to soften slightly.
