Homemade Oreo Valentine Cookies
The holidays are a great time to make cookies. Use the theme to make the cookies special for your loved ones. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to make some Valentine’s Cookies. I love making the sugar cutout cookies but wanted to do something different.
My family has always loved when I make Homemade Oreo Cookies so I decided to put a little twist on them with pink frosting and sprinkles. Nothing says Valentine’s Day like pink and sprinkles. This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies.
Homemade Oreo Cookies
- 1 box devil’s food cake mix ( I thought it would be fun to use a red velvet cake mix too)
- 3/4 cup shortening
- 2 eggs
Mix ingredients together in your mixer combining ingredients well. Dough will be very thick. Use a cookie scoop to make sure all cookies are the same size for when you put them together. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake.
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
Combine all ingredients and mix well in your KitchenAid Stand Mixer . Add a little red food coloring to make a pink frosting.
After cookies are cooled, put enough frosting between 2 cookies to cover the cookies to the sides. Roll cookie sides in sprinkles.
Delicious cookies for everyone to enjoy. I know my neighbors enjoyed their early Valentine Oreo Cookies.
