It’s my roommate’s birthday today! Happy Birthday Ashley! Since our birthday’s are so close together, we have been doing a lot of celebrating around here. We threw a barnyard birthday bash last weekend and Ashley was “best in show” for her immaculate sheep costume. She made it herself!!
Ashley could argue with you very passionately that double-stuffed Oreos are the only way to go and a single-stuffed Oreo isn’t even worth eating. So, for her birthday, I made a bowl of Oreo filling to stuff a cookie with as much as she can fit between cookies! When it’s your birthday, you should have as much “stuffing” as you want!
I bought tubs of cookies from Trader Joe’s so she can make her own cookies all day long at work. She and her coworkers have gotten creative with double-decker quadruple-stuffed combinations!
Oreo Cookie Filling
Source: Cookies & Cups
- 3 ½ cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 3 Tablespoons hot water
In a mixing bowl, beat all ingredients together for a couple of minutes until creamy. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
Serve with anything you can think of putting Oreo cookie on!
You have way more fun than we do! At the beach, themed parties and eating very well.
I love the oreo cookie idea. And your roomate looks like a whole lotta fun!
