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.
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. Then 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!
