By all accounts (and by "all accounts" I mean Yahoo, which, sadly, is where I get much of my news) today is the 100th birthday of the Oreo cookie. As someone who very much enjoys this little cookie- especially with a cold glass of milk - I thought I would pay homage by sharing with you a recipe.
The following was passed along by a friend who made a batch for me as a Christmas gift a couple years ago. Definitely NOT something you would want to eat everyday but OHHHH so good.
1 package Oreo cookies
1 package cream cheese
1 package white almond bark
1 tablespoon Crisco shortening
Crush oreo cookies (you can use a mini chopper)
Blend oreos with softened cream cheese until well mixed
Roll into balls
Place in the refrigerator to cool and set approx. 15-20 minutes
Melt almond bark and shortening
Dip rolled balls into chocolate, place on waxed paper and let set.
So simple and sooooo good.
P.S. Did you vote today? I did - even though it took a little longer due to an address conflict. One little mile cost me my place in line.
