Homemade Oreos


Years ago, before I was married and had kids, a friend brought me a little brown paper bag filled with tiny homemade oreos. I had never had them before, and I thought she must be a cooking wizard to have made something so completely delicious. Little did I know they were made using a Devil’s Food cake mix! Those are still my favorite homemade oreos, but when my husband requested them last week and we didn’t have a cake mix on hand, I had to improvise. Luckily, I had just seen a Martha Stewart recipe for homemade chocolate sandwich cookies.

I modified it a little–mine were probably bigger than they were supposed to be, I didn’t flatten them before baking, and I didn’t add shortening to my vanilla filling–and we loved the results! The wonderful thing about the cake mix version is how soft yet sturdy the cookies turn out. The from-scratch cookies turned out crunchier, but very delicious. If you shy away from prepackaged foods, or if you just don’t have a cake mix on hand, I highly recommend Martha Stewart’s Cream-Filled Chocolate Sandwiches!
