Irresistible homemade oreos are just that. Irresistible! These soft, deeply chocolatey cookies filled with cream cheese frosting will disappear quickly!
These irresistible homemade oreos are my teenage son’s absolute favorite cookie. My son asked me to make these for a class “Pi” day party today for his circular food contribution. For those of you who may not know, Pi day is a celebration of the number 3.14…..which is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. So every year on March 14th (aka 3-14) the math classes have a party and everyone brings circle shaped food to eat. This is not a recipe created by me and to be honest I have no idea where it orginated, but I wanted to share it anyway. These are easy and, well, irresistible. They will disappear faster than you think.
These cookies are cake mix cookies. All you need in a chocolate fudge cake mix, butter and eggs. I use a small scoop to measure out the dough for these. Each little glop of dough is a 1/2 Tablespoon. I can fit 20 to a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. Don’t overbake these or they will not be soft.
Once the cookies are cooled, frost one cookie with cream cheese frosting and top with another. It is as easy as that. Store these cookies in an airtight container in the fridge.

Scoop out by 1/2 tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. I can usually get 20 to a pan.
