Why am I so awesome? Homemade Oreos!!

03.22.09 | 7 Comments

The last two weeks the boorish marketing folks at Safeway have refused to put my beloved Oreos on sale. (I’ve had to settle for buying Chips Ahoy… Chips Ahoy!!) While my unabashed devotion to said cookies is eternal, I draw a line at $4 a pack.

So how do I subsist sans Oreos? It’s a trick question; I can’t live without them, so I must replicate them.

With the assistance of foodisluv, that’s what I did:

The cookies were obviously cakeier and larger, but while incredibly delicious in their own right, they are not Oreos: their Milk Dunkability Score (MDS) is quite low.

    How much did all of the baking supplies cost for these homemade Oreos? (By the way, your coolness just tripled. Impressive.)

    The only thing I didn’t have was cocoa powder, and that cost $4, but there’s still a lot left over.

    Considering the cost of things individually, you can probably make 30 cookies for $2

    I believe I emailed you a recipe for homemade Oreos 2 weeks ago, so I’d like to take credit for this endeavor. You can thank me now. I don’t really want Oreos, so maybe you can find me a pint of midnight cookie.

    @Jean: Thank you. I’ll see what I can do about the ice cream, especially if this means I can be proven right once and for all 🙂
