Homemade Oreo Cookie

what u need

1 box of duncan hines dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1/2 c. water
2 tbsp Shortening (Try to find something better than Crisco)

The cream filling consisted of:
3 3/4 c. powered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. shortening
3 tbsp hot water

how u do it


The mix your shortening, cake mix and water in a bowl. Get out your cookies sheet and laydown a piece of wax paper.

Then make small 1/2" balls and press them out onto the cookie sheet

when done, bake for about 10-15 minutes or until cookies are getting crisp,

lastly take out of the oven and let cool, the cookies should get crisp pretty quickly, if they are more gooey, put them back in for another 4 minutes.


To mix the filling just combine powdered sugar, shortening, hot water and vanilla.

I left mine on the stove a bit while the cookies were baking to soften up the shortening

Once you have crisp cookies and gooey filling, its time to combine

Just put a bit of filling between two similarly sized cookies and DONE ! SO GOOD

These cookies are my nans favorite and thanks to her for passing the recipe down to me !
