• Oreo Cookies

    Making your own oreo-style cookies is pretty easy, it just requires a store bought cake mix and a few minutes of time,
    they're well worth it!

    1 (18.25 oz) box Dark Fudge Cake Mix (Tried using homemade recipe, didn't taste like oreos)
    1/3 cup water
    2 tablespoons shortening

    3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup shortening (no substitution)
    3 tablespoons hot water

    Preheat oven to 325F.

    Combine cake mix and shortening, add water. Mix well into a very thick dough, then scoop into 3/4 inch balls (a melon baller works great!), place them on parchment paper. Use the bottom of a glass to press them flat. They should be spaced about 1/2 an inch apart to keep them from running together during baking.
    Bake about 5 minutes. Cool

    Make the filling by Combining
    the powdered sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and shortening in a mixing bowl or kitchenaid mixer. As it's mixing add hot water 1 Tbs at a time as needed. Fill the cooled cookies.

    Makes 2 dozen cookies (4 dozen wafers)

      I just made this recipe. it got the thumbs up from kids. I also made a batch using boxed yellow cake mix. I found out that if you make the cookie part a bit bigger and not cook it for so long you have just made a cakester.
