    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly flour your counter top, roll out oreo thin. You can use a spice jar cover to cut them out the right size, or a small cookie cutter. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool before filling.

      Shortening is just solid vegetable oil. Crisco in a can is one brand. I would recommend you use regular Crisco as opposed to the butter flavored for this recipe. Shortening is different than lard though, lard is animal fat. By the way, you can buy shortening in a can or in stick form (like butter) both can be found in the baking aisle.

      Sounds good, but as a former Girl Scout leader, I would still feel the need to donate some money to a troop that is fund raising for a good project. Money to the troop would go directly to the troop and not a small portion like with cookie sales. Hungry now. Should have a box left in the freezer.....
