very close to the real thing only better since they have that "homemade" taste. i suggest keeping with kathy's instruction of nickel size or even smaller. if they are bigger they don't spread out as nice and once you add the filling and another layer it becomes a little awkward to bite. also the smaller they are the crisper they are. if you want them bigger maybe press them out a bit before putting them in the oven. i've made these for the last couple of years and everyone loves them especially my oreo-freak dad!!

I couldn't really eat these because of how much shortening was in it. My hubby liked them. they don't really taste like oreos just chocolate cookies w/ frosting. The recipe made about 32 3inch finished cookies. I found them quite difficult to remove from my parchment lined baking sheets. I won't make again unless asked to. Read More

I wouldn't call these a copy of oreos but they are very good. The ease in which this mixes up and the great taste and nice presentation makes this cookie a winner. (They look like they were time consuming to make but really weren't.) My kids are asking to make them for their AWANA's club cookie exchange. That's high praise. I mixed marshmallow fluff and creme cheese icing together for the filling as per another suggestion. The tops did slip from the bottoms a bit probably due to the marshmallow fluff but it tasted good. This looks like a cookie that can be experimented with different flavored cake mixes and canned frostings for versatility too. A keeper of a recipe. Thanks! Read More

I have made these about 5 times since I first found the recipe 2 years ago (I can't believe I haven't reviewed it until now!). I love them! Just make sure you take the author's word for it and make them tiny!:D They get unwieldly if you go bigger than that. DEEE-licious! Read More

These are wonderful yet so easy. I've made these numerous times and they are always a hit. The last time I used mint extract and the result was delicious. Read More

These were fantastic! My kids made them for their home-ec class yesterday. Between making the cookies and the filling they were time consuming but worth it! We found that making the dough balls the size of quarters worked best. But the ones we made the size of nickels sure were cute! In fact my kids shared the cookies with some of their friends and they chose the small ones first. For the filling we used the ding dong cake filling recipe(from this site) And added Peanut Butter to the mix. They were a hit. Before you add the filling the cookies are hard like an oreo but after adding the filling they become soft. Either way they are fantastic! Read More

yum yum yum! VERY easy to make. I would also recommend sticking with very small dough balls since the smaller the more you end up with!:) The dough even made a very good BIG cookie for my husband. My friends are now asking when I'm going to make it again! Read More
