Homemade Oreos (7) This is a recipe that I have been wanting to make for a while. Homemade Oreos! Homemade Oreos   They are claimed to be America’s favorite cookie. I don’t know about America, but they were never my favorite cookies. I usually just ate the frosting and gave my cookies to my big sis who would show great selflessness and eat them for me. Homemade stuff is always better. I don’t think that I would have eaten just the frosting from these when I was little. No way would I have given these cookies away. Homemade Oreos (3) Another perk that comes with making them homemade is the option to make them double-decker, because who doesn’t love extra frosting? So get the milk ready, because these are totally dunkable! Homemade Oreos (4)
