Homemade Oreo Cookies

5 Stars

I'm calling these homemade oreo cookies because they look like them, but they taste very different. They are soft, gooey goodness.

I started looking for this recipe after reading a blog about homemade oreos. I googled and didn't find anything. Then, tonight, while looking around Bakerella, I saw this recipe for easy Valentine treats. I had the red velvet cake, but my husband wanted chocolate, so I went with that and I'm so happy I did!

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

Cookie Ingredients:
1 Box Cake Mix (any flavor, I used fudgy chocolate)
2 Eggs
1/2 c. butter (room temperature)

Mix together until combined. If you have a stand mixer, use it. I only have a cheap hand mixer and this mix was almost the death of my trusty friend.

Measure out mixture into even balls. I used a tea spoon to measure and just hand rolled them or you could use an ice cream scoop.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until done. I like mine on the softer side, so I baked them for 10 minutes.

Cool completely.

Filling Ingredients:
1/2 c. butter (room temperature)
1- 8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature, I used 1/3 less fat version)
1- 1 lb. box of confectioners sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix butter, cream cheese, and vanilla together until creamy. Once again, if you have a stand mixer, use it. I used my little hand mixer that could and it was fine. Add sugar in slowly until smooth.

Take two similar size cookies. Place a small amount of icing in the middle and press together until icing is even with the sides.

Make sure you can share these with someone. They are very rich, but too good to keep only for yourself!
