Old School Homemade Oreos

  • Author: Lindsay
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 15-20 sandwich cookies 1x


Life-changing Homemade Oreos that are soft, buttery, moist, perfectly dense chocolate cookies stuffed with cream cheese frosting. SO GOOD. 




  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 box Devil’s Food cake mix


  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Beat cookie ingredients together with an electric mixer until combined. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll into small one or two tablespoon balls. Place on a baking sheet. (Chill the dough for about 30 minutes if it’s too soft to roll.)
  3. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
  4. Beat frosting ingredients together with an electric mixer. Using a plastic bag with the end cut off, or a pastry bag, pipe a swirl of frosting onto one cookie and gently press a same-size cookie on top. Voila! Store in the refrigerator – or on  your cold porch if you live in Minnesota!
