These cookies were a staple in our house growing up.  I always loved when my mom whipped up a batch of these!  They are so easy to make and use a cake mix, which makes them perfect for any little baker in your family!

1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar (more or less depending on how thick/runny you like it)

    These look great- and I know anything by Six Sisters is fantastic!
    My older son could live on Oreos. I think I’ll make these with him. Already pinned it. Thanks so much!

  2. All of these comments are great. Has anyone actually made them and tried them? I’m just curious if they actually TASTE like Oreo’s. I just love this idea. I’m an oreo lover!

      We make them all of the time and they are the first cookies to go at a party. They don’t taste just like an oreo, but they are delicious. The chocolate cookie part is soft. So you have the chocolate cookie with the vanilla cream filling. YUM.

    Homemade oreos… they look amazing! This would be a great party treat for my son :) I will tell myself these oreos a little healthier because they’re homemade, right?! I found your blog on the What I Learned Wednesday link-up.

    Thanks for sharing this! Amy

    literally just got done making these! I love them to death. Little pointer, let the cookie part cool completely before putting the frosting on…when they are still warm the frosting just oozes right out. Learned that the hard way, made quite a mess! LOL. Mine turned out really, REALLY sweet. I couldn’t eat more then one, but they are still fabulous!
