Mmmm....so good. I think it just might be possible to have a sugar induced coma.
The oreo cookie recipe is from cjane, but I used a different frosting recipe. The frosting recipe is from Tasty Kitchen and this was the perfect excuse to try it out. ('cause I've been needing a reason to make it!) FYI: these are good frozen too and I've been thinking I need to make some more with a chocolate mint theme. ☺
Homemade Oreo Cookies
1 package of devil's food cake mix2 eggs
3/4 cup of shortening
blend all together at once.
roll soft dough in small balls
on a cookie sheet.
(don't press down,
keep balls intact before baking)
bake at 350 degrees
for 8 minutes
frosting for the middle: (Recipe that I used, down below)
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 stick of butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 to 4 c. powdered sugar
mix until smooth.
when cookies are cool:
frost backs of cookies
and make sandwich with another cookie.
•5 Tablespoons Flour
•1 teaspoon Vanilla
•1 cup Butter
•1 cup Granulated Sugar (not Powdered Sugar!)
In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk and heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. Stir in vanilla.
While the mixture is cooling, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Then add the cooled milk/flour/vanilla mixture and beat until it all combines and resembles whipped cream.
