There is no doubt that the OREO COOKIE is the king of all cookies (in my mind at least).
What can be more decadent than icing filling sandwiched between two perfectly dark brown and round cookie wafers, eaten together with a tall glass of cold, full-cream milk? Hmm, I’m salivating just picturing the cookies, my mind working out how to eat the OREOS and drink the milk all at the same time.
Oreos have been my favorite cookies since the beginning of my childhood, after they had so easily replaced my other favorite cookie, the milk cookie. Since then, there’s been no turning back, and I cave in anytime there are Oreo cookies in any recipe, be it McDonald’s Oreo McFlurry ice cream, or Oreo cheesecake, or Oreo milkshake.
The quest to make my own homemade Oreo cookies..
I’ve been wanting to make my own homemade Oreo cookies for a while already, and while surfing the net for a decent Oreo cookie recipe, I chanced across CupCake Project’s recipe. The recipe looked easy enough, and the pictures were so awfully tempting that I had no choice but to bookmark the site and get down and dirty making Oreo cookies yesterday.
They turned out OREOLICIOUS!!!! Having them for breakfast, tea and midnight snacks these few days. I’m so excited and happy that I’ve finally manage to recreate (not entirely but about there) my favorite childhood cookie!! And guess what, so can you!
