Let me tell you something about the hubs. He LOVES oreos. Double stuffed, to be exact. One time I bought him oreos to try and appease for the fact that I convinced him (read: BEGGED) to let me buy an overly priced water bottle at REI. Needless to say, he was not pleased. So at Costco later, I see a huge multi pack of oreos, and think to myself, Elizabeth, get him oreos and he will be happy again! So I did, only to realize later that they were NOT double stuffed but merely regular, and the points I thought I had earned back were immediately taken away again. Bummer deal man.
Anyway, I digress. Yesterday I made homemade oreos for the hubs, because it was his birthday recently and because he is the best. (Don't worry, the water bottle / regular oreos debacle has long since been resolved.) They are fabulous, and taste a lot like the real thing! But better. Because they are made with love and not prepackaged by a cold and hateful machine at the oreo company. I got the recipe from one of my favorite cooking blogs.
The last time I tried to make these my friend Jorgen was over to help me. She is very pretty and also a great cook, so it was easier that time. This time around I had to fend for myself, but I think they still turned out semi presentable. And I stuffed them nice and full. Have a looksie.
Here he is getting ready to enjoy his precious treats.
Here's Gepetto trying to steal a taste. Bad kitty!
Sorry they were late this year hubsy!
