From an old church cookbook. I can't guarantee that they are as good as real oreos or even the other recipes posted. But, they are definitely diet busting, sugar high and chocolaty. Requires a glass of milk.
- 1⁄2 cup Crisco
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa
- 1⁄2 cup hot water
- 2 3⁄4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup sour milk (or 1/2 tsp vinegar to 1/2 cup milk)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup Crisco
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 5 tablespoons flour
- Cream crisco, sugar and eggs together; add cocoa, water and flour.
- Add baking soda, salt and sour milk. Stir all together.
- drop by teaspoons on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Cream together first 5 ingredients and set aside.
- In double boiler or heavy saucepan, cook 1 cup of milk and 5 Tablespoons flour until very thick.

I was excited to make this to help it get a review... sorry I couldn't be more generous with my stars. :(
Whoopie pies and Oreo's aren't really alike... this is a whoopie pie. The "cookie" is a cake texture. I was going for an oreo. I tried smashing them when I first pulled them out of the oven as I have done with other "oreo" recipes but it never crisped up. I was using these for a project ("turkeys") but I was able to make it work in the end. I chose this recipe because I was intrigued by the flour/milk mixture for the filling. I thought this might reduce the "super sweetness". I DID reduce the sweetness, however, it still tasted like Crisco. Not pleasant at all. If I were to try the filling again I would use butter in place of the shortening.
