Homemade Oreo Cookies

These are by far my favorite cookies ever! They are simple to make and there are a couple of different frosting types you can stuff in the middle. Our favorite frosting is just a simple vanilla buttercream, but you can also do a cream cheese filling or the newest frosting type I have come across is a creamy peanut butter! Yum!

1 box Devils Food Cake Mix
2 eggs
2/3 cup shortening

Preheat oven to *375. Mix together cake mix, eggs, and shortening till well combined. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. I give them a little pat in the middle, that way the cookie cooks evenly all over. Then I place them onto a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat. (this helps so the cookies don't burn on bottom or stick to the cookie sheet) Bake for 8-10 minutes then cool on a cooling rack. Once completely cooled frost with frosting of choice!

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:
3 Tbsp. butter (softened)
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. evaporated milk
1 tsp. Vanilla

  4. I was wondering if you've ever tried it with a white cake mix?

  5. @ Shari-
    I have never made them with a white cake mix, however I have made them with a Cherry Chip cake mix cause my husbands family loves Cherry Chip Cake but I'll be honest, I didn't care for the cherry chip ones at all! I bet the white cake ones would be really good though!

  8. what is a silpat?

    1. It is a baking mat with a non stick surface. Available online and stores. For online, just put silpat in your address and it will show you many sources. you could also use parchment or reynolds stick proof aluminum foil.
