The age old question….how do you eat an Oreo? This debate has been around a long time, since 1912 when the Oreo cookie was first introduced. It has been a best seller in America ever since then. We have eaten our share of Oreos at the Wilkes house and we even had a rabbit we named Oreo!! The only thing better than an Oreo is a Homemade Oreo.
So how do you like to eat an Oreo?
Do you pop the whole thing in your mouth at one time? Do you eat it a bite at a time?
Do you twist it apart and eat the inside first or do you twist and eat the outside first??
Do you eat just the inside or just the outside?
Do you dunk it in milk??
I’m a dunker!
This summer I found a recipe for homemade Oreos in our church cookbook. I made them when the Wilkes family was here for our summer reunion and they were a big hit. This version is a “soft” Oreo and yummy!
I make them using my smallest cookie scoop because they are pretty rich and I don’t like them too big.
I then use the same size scoop to place a scoop of the yummy cream cheese frosting onto the cookie.
Just top it off with another cookie and you have a yummy homemade Oreo.
I use a Devil’s Food cake mix for this recipe but you can have fun and try different flavor of cake mixes to change it up now and then. Thinking a Red Velvet Oreo would be fun!

- ½ cube butter, room temperature (1/4 cup)
