Last treat before Christmas: Oreo Cakes


These oreos, or I call it oreo cakes sometimes, are super easy and simple to make and every bite is sweet and wonderful. All you need is your favorite Betty Crocker cakes and cream cheese frosting, okay, plus some oil and eggs. Pretty simple, right? I got this recipe from my college roommate before I got married. At first, I thought she made these from scratch. When I found out that she used those cake mixes, I was so happy because I could make these in only a few minutes without putting too much effort in making these amazing treats.


I usually use a chocolate cake mix from Betty Crocker but my friend tells me that she likes to use an orange flavored cake mix, too. I couldn't find those at our grocery store, so I used chocolate and yellow cake mixes. They turned out fabulous. I actually really enjoyed the yellow oreo cakes. So you can be creative with this recipe. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! I'll be back after Christmas. Happy Holidays!


Oreo Cake Cookies

1 Betty Crocker cake mix (chocolate or your favorites)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe follows)

Directions:

Mix the first three ingredients together in a large bowl.

Make ping pong ball sized cookies and slightly press them down on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes. (Do not overbake them. They are best when slightly underbaked.)

Cool about 15-20 minutes and frost with creamcheese frosting in between two cookies.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese

Sook the Cook
