Whether you’re four or forty years old, I think just about everyone loves Oreo cookies! And, just like the store-bought versions, you wont be able to eat just one of these! I remember my mom making these when we were little and we loved helping her put the filling between the cookies and smashing them together. We’d always have to hide one or two cookies in a secret place because when the boys came home from school these cookies were gone!
I have two recipes posted below. One is a truly homemade oreo cookie, and the other uses a cake mix. If you’re in a time crunch, the cake mix version have been a family favorite for years! Otherwise, you wont be sorry for making the Homemade Oreo Cookie recipe, courtesy of the fabulous Sally from Sally’s Baking Addiction! Do you follow her blog? You should. She’s a baking whiz!
- 1 package of Devil's Food cake mix
- 1/2 cup Shortening
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese
- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together. Roll dough into small balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire cooling wrack.
Once cooled, add a small dollop off cream cheese filling onto one cookie. Place another cookie on top and press together.
