Cookies and Cream Cake

Cookies and Cream Cake 

It won't last long!

Oreo: A confection consisting of a white cream filling sandwiched between two chocolate cookies. The word Oreo comes from a Greek word meaning “appetizing.”


Cookies and Cream Cake

My kids love this cake! It is fun to make and eat! If you don’t want to spend the extra time making a layer cake, just dump the batter into a 9x13-inch pan, bake for about 25 - 30 minutes, throw on the icing, and sprinkle with crushed Oreos. If time is really tight, use a canned icing. Your kids will still love it! As you can see, my icing job is far from perfect, but my family still thought it was pretty and yummy!!

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix
1-1/4 cups water
1/3 cup canola oil
3 eggs
1 cup coarsely crushed cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (I used 12 Oreos.)

Icing:
1/2 cup butter, softened (You can use shortening, if you prefer.)
4 cups confectioners' sugar
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Garnish:
More cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, oil and eggs; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on high for 2 minutes. Gently fold in crushed cookies.
Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans.
Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 25 – 30 minutes.
Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

For icing:
Beat the butter, sugar, milk and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth.
Spread icing between layers and over top and sides of cake.

Garnish:
Decorate the top and sides of cake with more whole or chopped cookies, if desired.
Get creative with it!
