Homemade Oreo Cookies

Mouth-watering Homemade Oreo Cookies with chocolate cookies and a delicious creamy filling will have the whole house begging for more.

Fake Oreos

We set out to try to make them on our own Homemade oreo cookies and we found this recipe.

Oreos are a big hit at our house and they are probably just as loved in almost every house in America. A crispy chocolate cookie and a sweet creamy center, what’s not to love? I guess some people are a little biased one way or another towards either the cookie or the cream, to dip or not dip but any way you look at it these cookies have something special for everybody! My husband especially loves this recipe for fake oreos and I love it too, it is such a simple recipe for something so delicious! Who would’ve thought that a delicately sweet creamy filling sandwiched between two perfectly chocolatey oreo cookies would be so simple to make in your own kitchen! These are definitely going to be a new favorite at our house from now on. These would also be great to make with the littles. They are going to love helping you squish the two cookies together. Sure, maybe a little messy but fun none the less!

Can You Make Homemade Oreo Cookies with Cake Mix?

If you don’t want to make the cookies from scratch just use a box of devils food cake, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup veggie oil and bake 325 for 8-10 min.

Can you Freeze Homemade Oreo Cookies?

You can freeze the homemade oreo cookies, but we would NOT suggest freezing the cream filling as it can separate when you pull it out of the freezer.

What we actually prefer to do is to freeze the homemade oreo cookie dough. This keeps the cookies fresh and it’s so easy to pop the dough in the oven and while they bake make the cream filling.

How Long do Cookies Last in the Freezer?

Once cookies are baked you need to make sure that they are wrapped well in saran wrap and then placed in a freezer bag for no more than 2 months.

Cookie dough can be frozen for up to 6 months in a well sealed freezer bag or up to 8 months if you use a Food Saver.
