There are few things in life that can fix common problems like a good cookie.
Add a cup of coffee, and it’s even better.
When it’s a kid with the problem,
they are always happy to have a cookie to help the hurt!
When it’s me, with or without a problem,
well, I am just always happy to eat!
My Mom found a recipe for homemade Oreo Cookies
and they have been a hit around here.
We like them tiny, you can eat more that way.
We started scooping them out
and than cutting each scoop in half to make them smaller.
It makes more cookies and they are so cute!
About two or three bites and it’s gone
and you can justify eating another one because they are so small!
2 boxes Devil’s food cake mixes
1 1/2 c Crisco
Bake the cookies for 8 minutes
(time may differ with ovens)
8oz Cream cheese – softened
1 stick of butter – softened
2 tsp vanilla
4 c powdered sugar
Beat the cream cheese, add butter and mix.
Add vanilla and powder sugar. Mix until creamy.
Place a spoonful on half of the cookies.
Top with the rest of the cookies.
Taste a few while working.
I experimented with different brands of cake mix but this one turns out the best. The cookies are a little flatter with the Betty Crocker brand and work well to put filling between them. When I used another kind, they were more like fat little nuggets.
We did try other flavors too.
These are butterpecan, but I wasn’t so fond of them.
My sister tried a yellow cake mix and said they were good.
I guess your options are only limited to all the kinds of cake mixes.
Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.
