Let's Make It
Heat oven to 450ºF.
Mix cream cheese and 2 Tbsp. sugar until blended. Roll out 1 pie crust to 12-inch round on lightly floured surface; spread with cream cheese mixture. Roll out second crust as directed; place over first crust. Cut into 44 (4x3/4-inch) strips.
Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar in pie plate. Brush both sides of dough strips, 1 at a time, with butter, then dip in sugar mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides of each strip; twist slightly then place on prepared baking sheets.
Bake 12 to 13 min. or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets 2 min. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely.
Microwave chocolate and COOL WHIP in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 to 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is blended, stirring every minute. Serve with cookies.
Substitute 1 pkg. (11 oz.) KRAFT Caramels for the chocolate, adjusting the microwaving time if necessary until caramels are completely melted and ingredients are well blended. If desired, stir in 1/4 cup cooled brewed strong MAXWELL HOUSE Coffee.
