Homemade Oreo Cookies

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 mix
2 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.







as usual, I made mine too big
Like I said, I've been looking for an excuse to try out this recipe for frosting and I thought it was great! (ok, ok, really I didn't have any cream cheese to make the other one, but I really have wanted to try this recipe.)

Frosting
•1 cup Milk
•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.

Those are very similar to a cookie we have been making for years, don't know where the recipe came from but we call them Cake Mix cookies, because you can make them with basically any cake mix, any flavor. Love the lemon.

1 Pudding in the mix Cake Mix (or just a moist cake mix)
2 eggs
1/3 cup canola oil

I like to use my ice cream scoop to form the balls, you get a more uniform size and shape. You should try the lemon.

Oooh....the lemon does sound really good! I like to use an ice cream scoop too, but mine is too big for these cookies. Guess I need to buy me a smaller sized just for cookies. ☺

Ours has a 70 on it, I assume that's the volume in ml.
