These came out great! They took longer than 12 minutes to bake in my oven - more like 20. But by the time the edges were golden brown, they were perfect. The Oreos I used were the holiday ones with red cream, and I used some green food coloring since I was making them to go with some other Christmas cookies. They really would be good anytime of the year, though!

Strangely enough, I've become a better cook to lose weight. I joined eDiets and lost 100 pounds. Now I'm on the look out for tasty recipes that are easy to fix (I teach and often don't get home until after 5PM). In addition to my kitchen, my favorite place is my garden. I have a combination flower/herb/veggie garden and love to grow a variety of vintage or unusual plants. Because I teach I actually DO get a month off. I get up early to garden, sleep the hot afternoons away, then cook, read and watch movies. My favorite cookbooks are Crazy Plates and Looneyspoons. They are full of delicious, lowfat recipes with tons of trivia and humor. I teach science in a converted home ec kitchen. I love to use food as a teaching tool - making cheese to teach enzyme action, pickles to teach osmosis and diffusion, fudge to demonstrate igneous rock formation. I love kitchen gadgets, KitchenAid, Le Creuset cookware and my cats.
