homemade oreo's

Homemade Oreo Cookies

(and NO, I absolutely do not use Crisco in the filling! Blech!)


1 pkg Betty Crocker cake mix- devil's food, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate.
1 egg
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup sugar

Mix together the cake mix, egg and water with beaters on medium until combined. (will be sticky) Portion out with a cookie scoop and roll in sugar. Bake for 17 minutes at 350. Let cool completely. Make filling.


1 -8 oz pkg cream cheese, at room temp
3/4 stick butter, at room temp
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 TB heavy whipping cream

Beat the cream cheese and butter on medium until smooth. Add the sugar in two additions, mixing well. Add the vanilla. Beat in the heavy cream, and whip on high until light and fluffy. (try not to eat it all. It's so hard, I know.)

Line up half the cookies on the counter upside down, and using cookie scoop, portion out filling onto each overturned cookie. Take the other half of the cookies and sandwich on top of the filled cookies. Store in the fridge. They taste best slightly chilled, in my opinion.

Makes about a dozen, which is perfect for the two of us to share.
