Oreo Cookies to Die For
Disclaimer: These Cookies are NOT from Scratch! But, they are really really good! When my husband sits down to eat store-bought oreos with a tall glass of milk, he usually manages to eat 12 or 13 before he stops himself (or I stop him…). He came home between jobs today, saw what I was making for a family reunion we have this weekend and declared “Those are MINE! They are all for ME!” However, after filling himself up with just one, he reluctantly agreed to share them with his family. These “oreos” are huge and filling.
Oreo Cookies to Die for (from a family friend)
- 2 pkgs devil’s food cake mix (I did warn you…)
- 2/3 cup of oil
- 4 eggs
Combine all the ingredients with a wooden spoon (I tried to use a whisk at first, but the batter was so thick it was impossible). Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Leave lots of space between the balls because they flatten and spread out quite a bit. Bake for 10 min at 350. Cool on wire racks.
- 1 oz pkg cream cheese (or neufchatel cheese, which is cheaper and has less fat)
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 3 1/2 cups of confectioner’s sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
Cream together in a medium bowl. Spread a thick layer of icing on one cookie and top it with another cookie, making a sandwich. I like these best frozen, like ice-cream sandwiches. (makes 24 cookies)
I thought, as I was assembling these cookies, that it would be very easy to make them with mint or peppermint extract instead of the vanilla for Christmas, or pumpkin flavouring (as my husband suggested) for Hallowe’en. You could also easily substitute a white cake for the chocolate.
