Homemade Oreos

The great debate – what is the best way to eat an Oreo cookie?  That debate has been raging since 1912 when the Oreo cookie was introduced and it has been the best selling cookie in America ever since with over 362 billion sold!!  We have eaten our share of Oreos here at the Wilkes house (we even named our rabbit Oreo).

So how do you like to eat your Oreo cookie?  How you eat your Oreo actually reveals a lot about your personality - or so says this cute online quiz.

Do you eat your Oreo…

1. The whole thing all at once.
2. One bite at a time
3. Slow and methodical nibbles examining the results of each bite afterwards.
4. In little feverous nibbles.
5. Dunked in some liquid (milk, coffee…).
6. Twisted apart, the inside, then the cookie.
7. Twisted apart, the inside, and toss the cookie.
8. Just the cookie, not the inside.
9. I just like to lick them, not eat them.
10. I don’t have a favorite way because I don’t like Oreos.

I’m a dunker (in milk), you’ll have to read the quiz to see what that says about my personality!

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.
