Five Delicious Recipes Using Oreos

This week the Oreo cookie celebrates its 100th anniversary!  Did you know the first one was sold to a Hoboken, NJ grocery store in 19112?  The Oreo is the best selling cookie in the US, selling over 362 billion in its lifetime.  Learn more about the history of the Oreo here.

To celebrate Oreo’s anniversary why not make one of these recipes this weekend?


Easy OREO Truffles -  So easy and so good.  This recipe only calls for 3 ingredients: Oreos, cream cheese and chocolate.  Definitely a crowd pleaser!


My Sweet Creations Peanut Butter Cookie Pie – with an Oreo cookie crust, a light peanut butter filling and peanut butter cup topping, you can’t go wrong.


Oreo Cookie Bark – Easy, easy, easy.  I could eat a whole container of this bark.  Yum.


Deep Fried Oreos – this is a carnival favorite.  The pancake coating creates a nice soft crust while the cookie melts inside.

Cookies and Peppermint Ice Cream Cake – Mmmm this reminds me of a giant Thin Mint cookie!  Perfect for your next special occasion cake.

A Cherpumple? A Pumpple?

My friend C.D. introduced me to this new concept.  Think about the dessert version of a Turducken (Turkey stuffed with a duck, stuffed with a chicken).  This Delish.com article breaks down the difference between the Cherpumple and the Pumpple.  Which is your favorite?

The Cherpumple has three layers.  The bottom layer is apple pie baked into spice cake; in the middle pumpkin pie is surrounded by yellow cake; and finally on top white cake with cherry pie baked inside. After baking the layers are stacked and the entire dessert is then iced with a thick coating of cream cheese frosting.


The Pumpple is a simpler affair, with only two buttercream frosted layers – the first a pumpkin pie filled chocolate cake and the second a vanilla cake stuffed with apple pie.  You can watch the ladies of The Today Show taste the cake!
