These homemade Oreo Cookies start with a cake mix, and are filled with a yummy cream cheese frosting. Always a crowd favorite!

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!

I recommend using a cookie scoop for this recipe so that your cookies will all turn out the same size. It’s much easier to match the tops and bottoms together that way!

Oreo Cookies Recipe
Chocolate sandwich cookies with a cream cheese filling.
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes



  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar for rolling (optional)

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3 Tbsp butter, soft
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • dash of salt


  1. Cookies: Combine all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Stir till well blended. Dough will be stiff.
  2. Roll into 1" balls and roll in sugar if desired. (I recommend using a small cookie scoop so cookies turn out the same size.)
  3. Place balls on lightly greased or silpat lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for about 8-10 minutes. Remove to cooling racks and cool completely.
  4. Frosting: Beat cream cheese and butter till smooth. Add remaining ingredients and beat well.
  5. Frost the flat side of one cookie, then place another cookie on top, flat side down. Enjoy!
