Homemade Oreo Cookies


 Ok, I have another cake mix recipe for you only, I didn't get it from my friend's cookbook 101 things to do with a Yellow Cake mix. I was actually given many versions of this type of recipe. These are so simple to make, but can be a little time consuming with the sandwiching part of it all. (Sometimes, I find myself just dunking the cookies in the frosting ;) However, the end result is wonderfully delicious and when you are done, you wish you'd doubled the recipe so you have enough for everyone else. This recipe can make quite a few cookies depending on how big you make them. So, it is all up to you. I have made all of the versions listed below including a gluten-free version I created using a gluten free cake mix; it turned out fantastic! I just made a few adjustments. See each version of this recipe below:

* You can make these with one box of cake mix or many people preffer to double them so they can make large cookies.

Directions:

Mix all ingredients until it becomes a cookie dough.




Measure out dough in cookie spoon or roll into balls. Press each one down a little with your fingers or a bottom of a drinking glass.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Check them after 8 minutes. They will firm as they cool.


Transfer to a cookie sheet or plate and allow cookies to cool before frosting them.

I bet Rachael loved these cookies when you made them for her. I really want to try some gluten free or not.
