It's true. Homemade Oreo Cookie recipes are a dime a dozen but trust me when I tell you these are the best. And the easiest. I've tried at least 15 recipes and if you like your homemade oreos to be chewy and soft but brownie like then these are for you. If you're more of a whoppie pie type person, look elsewhere. I'm more of a brownie cookie and cream cheese filling kind of girl so these made me swoon at first bite.
1 chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup water
Roll into small balls (the size of a regular cookie scoop or teaspoon) and bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes until tops crack. Let cool for five minutes and then transfer to cooling rack. Let cool until they come to room temperature before frosting.
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 - 4 teaspoons whole milk
Whip cream cheese and butter using a hand-held mixer until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and whip until smooth. Stir in vanilla and add milk, one teaspoon at a time, until the consistency is smooth and fluffy. Dollop a generous spoonful onto one cookie and spread. Top with another cookie. Store in refrigerator - best served slightly chilled.
