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

While we normally recommend using homemade mixes, in this case, it didn’t work out so well, the cookies just didn’t crisp up like Oreo wafers. If you don’t mind slightly chewy (almost) Oreo’s then use a https://www.budget101.com/recipes/579-make-your-own-cake-mixes/. Otherwise, splurge for a dark fudge cake mix.

Copycat Oreo Cookies Recipe

Cookie Wafers

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

Creme Filling

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 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.
