Celebrating the OREO: Our 4 Favorite OREO Recipes

OREO-Cherry Cookie Balls - Snack Works RecipeSome prefer the cookie. Some the creme. Either way, people dig the Oreo cookie. Most of us have fond memories that include wiping the chocolaty remnants of the treat off our clothing or faces.

Turns out, the Oreo was first introduced in 1912 by the National Biscuit Company, now known as Nabisco. The original sandwich cookie featured "OREO" in the center with a wreath design around the edges. It wasn't until 1923 that the "twist" approach to eating the cookie was advertised.  While the design of the outer chocolate cookie hasn't changed much, OREO has expanded to include the Golden version, DOUBLE STUF, multiple flavored creme fillings and even ice cream cones.

Eating the sandwich cookie plain with milk isn't the only way to consume the tasty treat. The sandwich cookie has made a name for itself when it comes to baking.  There are several recipes for chocolate pie crusts, cake balls, milkshakes and even cupcakes.

In honor of OREO's birthday, here are a few of our favorite recipes using one of our favorite cookies!

OREO-Cherry Cookie Balls
Think cordial cherries meet OREO cookies in this scrumptious recipe from Nabisco.

OREO Biscotti
A cookie within a cookie? This recipe from Christine's Cuisine will add a bit of sweetness to your morning beverage or coffee break.

Cookies & Cream Peanut Butter
For me, this recipe from Picky is a slam "dunk" for it combines two of my favorites, OREO and PB, into one fantastic spread.  Looking for a unique gift for a PB lover? You've found it.

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes
Who doesn't love cupcakes? They are single-serving size bits of yummy goodness.  Adding some crushed OREOs and the half at the bottom of this recipe from Annie's Eats just makes it an all-time favorite!
