Homemade Oreos

               My boredom went to an all time maximum on Thursday. As I was hunting down for recipes, I stumbled across this one. My mind was blown as i read the title “Homemade Oreos”. Why didn’t I think of this before?!? But I put my shame aside as I put my apron on and started working on making these cookies. I adapted this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker , but I did tweak a few things. And MAN these cookies came out delicious! They brought me back to the Good Ol’ days of my childhood when I would just devour the cookies. But sadly, I’ve noticed that my Oreo love connection faded away in the background of school and well, aging. I did always keep those beloved cookies in my heart and our love connection has sprung again! These cookies are fairly easy to make and they have a rich, chocolaty taste. YUM! I’m practically drooling as I write this haha!


1. As I was baking these cookies, Pounder was just watching me. I HAD to take pictures because he was begging for a bite of the Oreos! But, with sadness in my voice I had to reject Pounders begging. He can’t have chocolate! So, I’m thinking about searching for a recipe for dog treats….

3. I can’t believe of how much views and feedback I’ve gotten from my last post! I love ya guys. I really think that without you, I wouldn’t have the energy to keep baking!! 🙂
