Homemade Oreos

There are few things in this world that I love more than Oreos, slathered in peanut butter, but these Homemade Oreos might be one of them. They are delicious, soft and totally addicting. I know better than to keep them around the house unless I am OK with eating the entire plate. They are easy to make, and the homemade frosting for the middle is absolutely perfect.

You will need for the cookies:
2 Devil Food cake mixes
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup shortening

You will need for the frosting:
1 8oz package of cream cheese
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 stick butter

Mix the cookie dough together. Take a couple teaspoons of dough and roll together in a ball. Place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. When the top of the cookie starts to crack, the cookie is done. Mix the frosting ingredients together until light and fluffy. When the cookies cool, spread frosting on the the flat side of a cookie and top with another cookie.

Drink with big ole' glass of milk, because they aren't Oreos without milk.

I have never tried making homemade oreos yet. I need to give it a go! I'm sure my kids would appreciate it. They look delicious!

These are like my favorite ever. I should make some with my girls. Thanks for the reminder that I love them so much. Now I won't be able to stop thinking about them! (stupid diet) :)

This is a family favorite at our house. I like to add some mint flavoring and green food coloring in the frosting. Yum!
