Last week my son made up a batch of homemade oreo cookies for a scout auction. I had a few people call to ask for the recipe, and was surprised to see that I hadn’t posted it here before. I don’t know how I missed it. Homemade Oreos are totally amazing, and have been a family favorite for years.

These homemade Oreo cookies have been a family favorite for decades. So easy, and so yummy!

They are super simple to make because they start with a cake mix. And the cream cheese frosting in the middle makes them just divine. If you’ve never tried making your own oreos before, I highly recommend it. They are awesome! I usually make a double batch, because they disappear fast!

Recipe for homemade Oreos. The cream cheese filling is so yummy. A must try cookie recipe!
