Last night I had this wonderful idea to make the most delicious cookies ever. And so I did. And they were delicious. These cookies, folks, are pretty difficult to make, but they are so worth it. Ok, who am I kidding? They're quite possibly the EASIEST cookie to make. Homemade Oreo's. Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is. I think I need to go grab one. . . or not. I don't need any extra weight around the middle, seeing as swimsuit season is fast approaching. If you have ever had an Oreo Cakester and loved it, then you will love these cookies x10. Even if you haven't had an Oreo Cakester or if you don't even like Oreo's in general, you will love these. They will become your favorite "go-to" cookie. So, without further ado, let me share the recipe and some delicious looking pictures for you all to enjoy!
1 Box Devils Food Cake Mix
2/3 Cup shortening
(Yes, that's really all the ingredients)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together until well blended, then shape into small balls. (well, whatever size cookie you want. I make mine small so that they are similar sized to an actual Oreo, but you can make em big if you wanna! Just remember, the smaller they are, the more you can eat and not feel guilty about, right?! Right?? Please, just agree with me!) Bake cookies for 7-8 minutes and then let cool. Frost with either vanilla or cream cheese frosting and smoosh cookies together, like an Oreo. And, voila! Homemade Oreos!
If I am feeling particularly ambitious, I make homemade cream cheese frosting. Last night, however, I was not, so I used some Betty Crocker Vanilla frosting out of the can, and you know what? It's amazing. So, don't be ambitious. It's totally over-rated. I promise. And now, the pictures. Yay! :)
Now, go make some! And enjoy them for me, please. :)
