Homemade Oreos

{Did you see the post below about the free $25 amazon gift card? Contest ends in one week!}

Birthday party preparations are under way for my soon to be 3 year old daughter.
{Where did the last 3 years go??}

Payton is a typical 3 year old girl... it's no surprise she loves pink, so she is having a very pink birthday party with a few of her closest friends.

My sister-in-law makes some absolutely delish homemade oreos and I knew I wanted to make some "pink" ones for Payton's party.
{along with many other treats..might have gone a little overboard on the party treats!}

These are so easy to make!

Here's the recipe I stole from her. These don't have the real taste or texture of oreos, but they taste awesome. It's a very soft cookie!

Homemade Oreos

Chocolate Cookie Part:

1 Box Betty Crocker Super Moist Devil's Food Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients and roll into 1" round balls.
Bake on greased cookie sheet for 5-6 minutes.

Cream Center:

8 oz cream cheese- softened
2.5 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
*Food coloring optional

I added a couple drops of red food coloring to make them cream pink. My SIL divides the mixture and makes red and green cream centers for Christmas.

Build sandwiches with 2 cookies and cream in the middle. Don't go stingy on the cream!

Do you have a favorite holiday treat?
