one of my favourite things about the christmas season is the cooking...and i always wonder why we seem to bring out our best recipes only for christmas...and why can't we enjoy such cooking throughout the year...all those cookies...and squares...and breads...and dips...and candy...hmmm...maybe it's a good thing they only come out once a year, lol!!!
well today i thought i would share with you one of my kid's favourites....homemade oreo cookies...i came across this recipe in a cookie exchange, an old friend made them and they have been requested ever since!!! this recipe makes a lot too...so it makes for great gifts on the fly!!!
homemade oreo cookies
3 pkg's devil's food chocolate cake
1 cup oil
cream cheese frosting ( see below instructions)
-preheat oven to 350
-mix all the ingredients together, the dough will be very stiff
- drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet (i use a small ice cream scoop, makes a nice size and keeps them all the same size)
- bake for about 8 minutes
-cool completely on a wire rack
- spread some frosting on the flat side of a cooled cookie and top with another cookie to create a sandwich, repeat until all the cookies have been made into oreos
cream cheese frosting
2 pkg's of softened cream cheese
1/2 cup softened butter
