J@H - Oreo Cookies

I'm a little behind on my Junk at Home challenge - I blame going on vacation, followed directly by a work conference. Luckily, I'm coming back with an amazing recipe! Homemade Oreos!!!

Yes, this recipe requires all of those exclamation marks.


I fed a few of these to the boyfriend and he described them as such... "they taste like Oreos, but without that stale, crumbly, crunchy part. The filling is dead on."


I can't take credit for the filling. I looked at a bunch of different recipes for Oreo fillings online and I decided to go with the one that sounded the least healthy and most unnatural. Just because these cookies are homemade, doesn't mean that they are healthy. 

At all.

There is a whole bunch of shortening in these cookies, but there is also Greek yogurt, so you know, it totally evens out. 


Seriously though, you should probably share these cookies with your friends and family. Limit yourself to one, two tops, and enjoy twisting open the cookies and eating the unnaturally white cookie filling.

Jell-O Peeps Jigglers

Ready for some more Peep-shaped treats? How about the easiest of all things to make? 

Jell-O!


Honestly, I happened to have four packages of Jell-O in my cupboard (because I know someone who works at Kraft Foods) and thought this would be the perfect reason to use them! Of all the Peep-shaped treats, these came out truest to the mold form.


This was also the easiest recipe to make. Boil two cups of water, add two packages of Jell-O (any flavor), pour into the molds, put in the fridge. Done.  And look... They jiggle...

Have yourselves a fun weekend! I'll be busy trying to figure out what else I can make in peep shapes with these molds!
