Homemade Oreo Cookies

Since I'm a cookie Monster, I love trying new cookie recipes.  This one bit ME and I'm so glad I tried it.  

Thanks to Holly at Life as a Lofthouse for sharing another one her fabulous recipes.  If you've not visited her before, please please please stop by and check out her awesome blog. And don't forget to tell her I sent you over.  I love her style of cooking/baking!

Quick. Simple. Delicious!

I buy cake mixes when they are on sale but almost NEVER bake a cake with them. I love using them to make other things, like this easy and yummy treat. Not everyone has time to make things from scratch so I am always happy when I can whip a mix out of my pantry and bake up something up with less mess and ease.

As you can see by the 'sticker' I added to the photo...I think these cookies are MUAH! good! 


1 (18 oz) box Devils Food Cake mix 
2 eggs
1/2 c. Vegetable Oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients; it will form a thick dough. Roll dough into 2 inch balls and place onto an un-greased cookie sheet. (If you think it's too sticky, just refrigerate for about 30 minutes).  Gently press down on dough to flatten slightly. Bake for 8-9 minutes. (They won't seem done, but they are!)  Remove from oven and let completely cool on the cookie sheet.


4 oz Cream Cheese, softened
2 Tb. Butter, softened
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla 
2 c. Powdered Sugar

In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, butter and vanilla with a hand mixer until well mixed. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar until smooth. 

Frost one oreo with desired amount of filling, top with a second cookie.
Store cookies in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
