Three Ingredient Homemade Oreos
Need a quick chocolate fix?
My college roommate used to make these, and I loved them. I was thrilled to come across this recipe (in yet another SAA production)a couple of years ago. While these don't come out hard and crunchy like commercial oreos, they are soft and sweet and with their three ingredients, they are perfect for young chefs as well!
2 pkgs devils food or chocolate cake mix
1/2 c. vegetable shortening
Mix all ingredients together, roll into small balls and bake at 350 for 8 minutes, or until cracks begin to appear.
Gently remove from pan and allow to cool on wire racks.
Once cooled, frost with cream cheese frosting and top with another cookie.
If time is of the essence, store bought frosting can be used as well.
**This cookie dough freezes well.
