Homemade Oreos

 

Oreos are one of my most favorite cookies that you can buy from the store. I love the chocolate cookie surrounding the sugary, fattening cream center. They are so incredibly delicious. I particularly love the Doublestuff Oreos—yum! If you love Oreos, then you know that nothing can be so satisfying as dipping your Oreo in a nice big glass of milk. The only thing that could make that combo even better is a homemade Oreo. A homemade Oreo you may ask? Yes, a homemade Oreo is unbelievingly delicious. Here is how you do it.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 devil's food cake mixes
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups of shortening
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

To make the cookies, mix the cake mixes, the eggs, the shortening, and the vanilla all together with a hand mixer. Note that this combo won't be appetizing and it won't be tasty. Scoop the dough with a melon baller so the cookies will have a uniform shape.

Once you have the ball of cookie dough, use the bottom of a glass tumbler to flatten it out a bit. The cookie dough is extremely greasy, so when you touch the glass tumbler to the dough, the tumbler will be able to pick up stuff, like sugar. When the tumbler is greasy, dip it in some sugar, and then press it to the ball of cookie dough to flatten it. The sugar will stick to the cookie dough to give the cookie an extra sugary punch. Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for nine minutes. This makes around ten dozen.

For the filling, cream together the cream cheese, the butter, and the vanilla. While not very low in calories, this filing tastes delicious! Wait until the cookies are completely cool and dry before putting the filling in. The filling is easiest applied through an icing bag, so put the filling into an icing bag and find an appropriate icing tip to put the filling onto the cookies. Just like with an Oreo, the final product should be two chocolate cookies sandwiching a delicious, creamy filling. Put the finished cookies into the fridge and let them cool for a bit: that will soften them up a bit, which will make for more enjoyable eating.

Now that you have your own recipe for Oreos, go out and try it and wow even your Oreo-loving self!
