Homemade Oreo Cookies

To celebrate St. Patricks Day I decided to make green oreo cookies. Everyone loves these cookies and I thought it would be fun to change the frosting color according to the holiday. I made cream cheese frosting for these ones but I'm sure mint frosting would have been great too. If you really want to make these cookies a snap you could just buy your favorite frosting, but homemade is always much better.


2 boxes Devils Food Cake mix
2/3 c oil
4 eggs

Mix ingredients together, the dough is thick. Then drop about a teaspoon sized ball of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Slightly flatten the ball of cookie dough down with the backside of your spoon. Cook @ 350 for 8 min. Let them cool completely then frost the flat side of one cookie generously and add another cookie to it to make a sandwich.


2 T butter or margarine
8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla
4 c powdered sugar

Whip the cream cheese and margarine together with a mixer. Add the vanilla, and slowly add the powdered sugar. If the frosting is too thick you may need to add a tiny amount of milk. However, too much milk will make it runny. You can also add food coloring if you'd like. I let my frosting sit in the fridge for a few minutes because it seemed slightly runny because of the milk and it thickened up a bit.
