1. Pillsbury Devils Food cake mix 1 box- 88 cents at Walmart
2. Frosting- either vanilla or cream cheese – $1.25 at Walmart
3. Two Eggs
4. 3/4 cup of vegetable or canola oil. Does not matter.
(This recipe is super easy to double to if you want to make more cookies! I would recommend not putting in all the oil at once and seeing how much you need as you go if you add more boxes of cake mix)
* Optional sprinkles or food coloring to change frosting color or decorate cookies with.
*Sometimes its also really good mixing mini chocolate chips in the batter!
Recipe makes about 25-30 small completed Oreos!
Step one: Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Step two: Put eggs, cake mix and 3/4 cup veggie oil into a mixing bowl and mix it up till the mixture becomes a thick dough ball. I always mix by hand on these cookies but I am sure a mixer would work to.
Step three: Do not grease up the pan before placing the dough on it. They will not stick at all because there is so much oil in them 🙂 Side note…this is a mini cooking sheet, because I have a mini oven and a large pan won’t fit inside the oven, so these dough balls really are small. You can put a lot more on a large cookie sheet because the cookies don’t spread to much.
Step four: Roll the dough with your hands into little or large dough balls. I like to make them about 1 inch each so when they bake they become the size of a real oreo.
Step five: Place cookies in oven and set your timer for 7-8 minutes. This way they will be extra soft and delicious to eat! You can cook them longer if you want a harder cookie, but 7 minutes is perfection!
Step six: After the cookies bake, take them out of the oven and put them straight on a cookie cooling rack. This way they will not cook any more, but will firm up on the cookie rack and become ready for frosting.
Step seven: After cookies have cooled for about 10 minutes you are ready to get frosting! This would be the time to dye your frosting if you are going to make it a cute color!
Step eight: EAT AND ENJOY! These are oh soo good! I know this will sound weird, but I think they are even better after the second day. I like to place all the cookies on a plate and wrap them tight with suran wrap and then eat them the next day! They are even better! Weird I know…Well hope you enjoy! Let me know if you make them and like them, or if there is a better recipe out there for these I must try 🙂
