So we made the recipe from Smitten Kitchen and they were very YUMMY! The cookie was wafer like with a chewy center and the cream center tasted just like the oreo cream center.
Here is how ours turned out:
I really wanted to make oreos like my sister-in-law’s. I searched the web for homemade oreos and found one on Cooks.com
The recipe is as follows: (this is a double recipe – I cut the ingredients in half for our batch and left the icing as is)
2 packages of Devil’s Food Cake mix
1-1/2 cup of Shortening
Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly. I use a mini “ice cream” scoop to measure out what I am dropping on the cookie sheet and it works perfectly. It isn’t called an ice cream scoop, I think it is a cookie scoop.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the pan.
In the meantime you can prepare your icing/frosting/filling:
8 oz of cream cheese
3 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 stick of butter.
Mix all of the ingredients and then you can pipe it on to one cookie and place another on top. I plan to store the made cookies in the refrigerator to see if that will keep them fresh.
We will see. I know so many people love these recipes. Next cookie I plan to make is an authentic sugar cookie with royal icing. I did find a recipe for that and will post once those are made!
Here they are:
Here’s to yummy treats!
