Homemade Oreo Cookies

Author: Angel Hickman Peterson

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Cups Blondie Mix ( get that recipe here)
  • 1/2 C . Cocoa
  • 1/2 C . Butter flavored shortening
  • 1 egg or egg substitute (I used 1 tsp Knox gelatin, 2 1/2 T cold water + 2 T boiling water)
  • 2 tsp . vanilla extract
  • Cream Frosting
  • 1/4 C . Butter or Margarine (softened)
  • 1/4 C . Vegetable Shortening
  • 2 C . Powdered Sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp . vanilla extract
  • 16 large marshmallows (melted in microwave safe bowl for 30-45 seconds, stir until uniform)

Instructions

  • Cookies - Mix all ingredients together. Dough will be somewhat crumbly, but will mold together. Use 1/2 T scoop to make small dough balls. Place on greased cookie sheet. Use bottom of glass to flatten to 1/4 inch thick. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees and allow to cool 5 minutes on pan before transferring to wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Frosting - Blend all ingredients together until whipped and smooth. You can split the batch and add 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract and add green or red food coloring for a fun minty cookie filling. Frosting will be quite thick and not be overly sweet. Pipe onto cooled cookies. Yield 24-36 sandwich cookies.
