Thursday, March 05, 2009 Homemade Oreo Cookies

Amanda's recipe. I made them for the first time today and they were delish. I modified a few things, as noted below.

2 chocolate cake mixes (any kind works…devil’s food, chocolate fudge, etc.)
4 eggs
2/3 cup oil

4 oz. cream cheese (half of a block)
2 cups icing sugar
1/2 tsp. milk
1 tbsp vanilla

Instructions:Blend dough ingredients until mixed. Roll a bit of dough into a ball, about the size of a small walnut. Bake at least one inch apart; the cookies flatten as they bake. Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool. While cookies are baking, make the frosting. (An electic mixer is best for making the frosting.) Take two cookies and slather a bunch of frosting on one, then smoosh the other on top. Oh, the gooey goodness.

NOTES: While I'm sure they are delicious as is, I modified a bit because I was craving some peppermint. :) I added a tsp. of peppermint extract, some green food coloring and I actually threw in the whole 8 oz. bar of cream cheese. Why? The better question is why not?
