How do I make homemade Oreos?

Homemade Oreos

Love the taste of Oreos, but hate all the processed chemicals found in them? Make your own at home! This simple recipe is great for bake sales, picnics, family gatherings, and more.


- 1 package Devil's Food cake mix
- 1 1/2 cups shortening
- 4 eggs

- 1 8 ounce package cream cheese
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 4 cups powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Blend the cake mix, eggs, and shortening together. Create marble sized balls of the dough mixture and bake them on a cookie sheet for seven to ten minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Soften the cream cheese to room temperature. Mix together all of the frosting ingredients, making sure each is incorporated well. Spread the frosting on one cookie and add a second cookie, making the "Oreo" style sandwich we all know and love.
