One of the reasons I love making home versions of foods you can easily buy is I have complete control over the ingredients and and I'm not stuck with a particular food manufacturer's draconian ideas. My foods are made from scratch, and I use recipes merely as a jumping block for experimentation. experimentation. That said, this one ingrediant annoys me - Betty Crocker chocolate fudge cake mix. If I wanted pre-made things, I'd just buy the cookies.

Great recipe, Todd!!! lateley Oreos have introduced other flavours in the Oreo family. I just made some mint flavoured, biasly, mine very more flavourful and a richer green. IT was a richer green cause i added to much coloring, haha. Getting ready to try a lemon flavour and a halloweeny special.

Pretty quick and easy. Good as they are, the chocolate cookie is not as darkly chocolate as the really thing. Changes I found that made it go quicker:
1. Treat the cookie dough like that of a cookie cutter dough - use a pastry ring to cut out circles.
2. This is going to sound odd, but I cooked the cookies on a griddle. Keeps the cookies flat.

Requires a little work and probably would'nt make them if the original was on sale but excellent recipe.

Not bad, but a lot of work. I think I'd rather just go out and buy the regular Oreo's instead of spending hours making these.

Ahh... homemade food is always better than the stuff they sell at the store.
Excellent! My grandchildren like them better than the original.

These are great! They do take a while to make but if you're committed to it you won't be disappointed!
