homemade oreo cookies

6.05.2008


Summer is so close, I can taste it at the tip of my tongue. I can also taste a lot of birthday cake, it is definitely birthday season. We had another office birthday today and I really wanted to make something special for my coworker. Oreos are one of my favorite childhood snacks. I love twisting the two chocolate cookies apart and dipping them in milk until they are soft. It will always bring me back and make me feel like a kid again. What better feeling to have than this on your birthday.

  12. I tried this out and they taste amazing. My cream filling turned out kinda runny though... I think it's because I used vanilla extract instead of paste, but they were still delicious.

  13. Lukas,
    Yes, this is definitely a staple recipe! Next time try putting the filling in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to solidify. Thanks for stopping by!
