Homemade Oreo Cakesters!!!




 It took me a while to figure out that even though butter makes everything taste better it doesn’t necessarily make things look pretty. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the best tasting food, but no matter how good it tastes, you’re less likely to eat it if it doesn’t look delicious! So to make my cookies more puffy I found out that you need to use shortening and a little cake flour. Here is how to make these delicious cookies!!

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups of sugar
3/4 nonalkalized cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons butter flavored shortening

4 1/2 cups powder sugar
1 stick of unsalted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 8 oz. pack of cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cream vanilla, shortening and eggs together. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Place parchment paper on cookie sheet and about a tablespoon sized balls  on the cookie sheet to bake for 8-10 minutes.

Make sure the cream cheese and butter are softened, and mix in a stand mixer blend the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together. Add powder sugar one cup at a time until to desired stiffness.

When done baking let them cool then pick 2 cookies about similar size put a dollop of cream cheese frosting in the middle and press them together.

  1. Hi Kimberley and Cassie,
    I don't people saw this at the party because you linked to your main site and not the post. I took the time to search for it. These remind me of woopie pies. I'm going to give your recipe a shout out! Hope to see you again this week at the party. Theresa @DearCreatives

  2. I had to come check out your Oreo recipe when I saw it on Sweet and Savoury Sunday because it gave me some nastalga. I made something like this years ago when I was in Girl Scouts! Thanks for sharing the recipe and thanks for the trip down memory lane! HUGS
