A fun dessert for Kids and the Kid in all of us

Sugar Cookie Scotchies came about as a recipe submission for my RWoP contest "Dessert Time Crunch" submission as well as my love for anything "sandwichie" (is that even a word) Hope you enjoy. I used large cookies but you could make them from bite size cookies and you'd have a fabulous cocktail size dessert. The recipe follows:
8 oz Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese
12 oz bag Butterscotch chips (divided)
capful vanilla
12 large premade sugar cookies
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts(divided)

In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1 cup of the butterscotch chips until just melted and still a bit thick.
Add ¾ of melted butter scotch (reserve the other ¼ melted chips in a small bowl) to cream cheese and vanilla, beat until combined and fluffy.
Stir in ¼ cup each chopped macadamia nuts and butter scotch chips.
Turn 6 sugar cookies upside down and spoon some of the mixture onto each. Top with the 6 other cookies to form a sandwich.
Roll each sandwich in the remaining ¼ each of macadamia nuts & butter scotch chips.
Take the reserved melted butterscotch chips add a few drops of oil and melt down to a thin consistency. Drizzle over the top of each cookie sandwich. Enjoy!
Serves 6
Until tomorrow eat well live well
