Ultimate Homemade Oreos
Do you know exactly how to eat an Oreo? Well, to do it, you unscrew it, very fast! 'Cause a kid'll eat the middle of an Oreo first! And save the chocolate cookie outside, for last!
- Ready In:
- 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box duncan hines dark dutch fudge cake mix
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 3 3⁄4 cups powdered sugar
- 1⁄2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1⁄3 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup shortening
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Blend all the cooking ingredients with an electric mixer.
- Then, knead it with your hands until it reaches the consistency of dough.
- Form the dough into balls about 3/4 of an inch in diameter and press them flat, 1/2 inch apart, onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the cookies are crunchy.
- Let the cookies cool on the sheets.
- As the cookies cool you can start making the filling.
- Combine all the filling ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer.
- With your hands form the filling into little balls about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch in diameter.
- Place a filling ball in the center of the flat side of one of the cooled cookies and press down with another cookie, flat side down, until the filling spreads out to the edge.
- You can double the recipe for Double-Stuff Oreos, but why stop there, go for Triple-Stuff, or even Quadruple-Stuff, you are the master of your Oreo!

I made these for my DS's today. They turned out great! DH tried them and immediately said "Tastes like an oreo". I am not an oreo fan, so the "wow" was probably wasted on me. Make sure that you loosen the cookies on the sheet after cooling for a minute. My first sheet didn't turn out (a bunch of 1/2 crumbled cookies). I used the greased bottom of a glass to flatten and that worked well. Filling was not as smooth as an oreo, but I think I must have done something wrong....I'm not a very good baker! All in all, I even liked these cookies (remember, I'm not an oreo fan - so that says a lot!)1Reply
Amazing! I just made up a batch, And ohhh my goodness, they're terrific. My store didn't have dark fudge cake mix, so i went with devils food. Maybe it's just me, but they do taste like real oreos! My icing turned out very crumblyat first as well, but when I mixed it morethan I thought I should have and it was perfect. It did make a LOT of icing, so I'm about to try the same recipe again with spice cake, as it's the only other mix I have on hand. Thanks for this great recipe!Reply
