Heavenly Homemade Oreo Cookies Recipe

I had a recipe for homemade oreo cookies, however, I couldn’t find it in my barrage of recipes. My husband loves these cookies and I wanted to make them for him. I found this version at Not So Secret Family Recipes.

When I made this, I halved the cookie recipe but made the full frosting recipe. We love lots of frosting. When I pulled the cookies out at 8 minutes they didn’t seem cooked enough, so I ended up cooking them for 10 minutes. I think I actually over cooked them. They were still good, but next time I’ll cook them for 9 minutes.

With the first tray, I just dropped the dough on the sheet with my cookie scoop and the cookies came out too puffy. I wanted that flat oreo look. So on the second tray, I flattened the dough a little before putting them in the oven. That worked great.

The other fun thing about these homemade oreo cookies is you can color the frosting to make them fun for the holidays. You can fill them with red and green colored frosting at Christmas, orange for Halloween, or even pink for Valentines Day. Or you can even use a yellow cake mix for golden oreos!

  1. When I make these the dough is so sticky it is hard to drop onto cookie sheet. What am I doing wrong?

  5. Oreos made with a cake mix. I’m doomed! I refuse to buy junk food and then come home and put some cake-mixy thing in the oven. I could see myself putting these together “just to try” them, while I ate the whole batch.
