Homemade Oreo Cookies

First off, I think these cookies are SO much better than store bought oreos. Don't get me wrong, I like store bought oreos, but these homemade oreos are so soft and yummy that I can't help liking them more. I made a double batch thinking they would last for awhile but no, they were gone way too quickly. I took a plate over to a family get together and I think everyone wished I would have brought more because they were seriously gone in minutes. My husband was also very disappointed when he came home the other day and found that they were all gone. I guess I'll just have to make some more very soon. :)

Homemade Oreo Cookies
  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
preheat oven to 350 degrees. with a hand mixer, combine cake mix, eggs, and shortening. using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out cookies onto baking sheet. bake 10 minutes. cookies should be soft. remove from oven and transfer cookies to cooling rack.

with a hand mixer, combine cream cheese, butter, and sugar. frost the bottom of a cookie and then top with another cookie to make a sandwich. continue with remaining cookies. makes about 25-30 cookie sandwiches.



WOW!!! Those look amazing. I'll have to try these someday. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE these cookies...way too much! It's fun to color the frosting for the occassion too, orange for halloween, red for Christmas,etc. Yummy!!

I was going to say that about the frosting colors too! There's also two other variations that I LOVE! Make it using a spice cake mix around Halloween/Thanksgiving time. MMMMMmmm! You can also use the chocolate cake, put some softened vanilla ice cream in the middle, then freeze them to make homemade ice cream sandwiches. YUMMY!!!
