I know a lot of people have been making homemade soft Oreos/whoopie pies lately, but I’m a little slow to jump on the bandwagon. It always just seemed sort of difficult. And then I had lunch at a friend’s house, and she showed me how incredibly easy it is to make them. A few days later, the craving struck (again! why is it always striking?) and I whipped out these babies while Geoff was in the shower. (Yes, he showers for an inordinately long time.) They’re not going to win any awards for creative or sophisticated cooking, but they certainly put a smile on Geoff and Abby’s faces.
Peanut Butter Cream Oreos
1 box devil’s food cake mix
1/3 cup oil
Mix all ingredients. Shape into balls, place on baking sheets, and flatten slightly. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, let cool on baking sheet.
1-2 T butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix butter, peanut butter, and vanilla. Add powdered sugar until desired consistency. I dumped in a little too much powdered sugar, so I added a teaspoon or so of milk to level things out. Spread on cookies and sandwich together, then stuff your face. Yum!
