Bring Some Milk, it's an Oreo Cookie Centennial Celebration!

Have a cookie. Not any old cookie mind you, A Deep Fried Oreo Cookie! That's right folks, today we are celebrating the Oreo Cookie's Birthday!!! For it was on March 6, 1912 that the Oreo Cookie made its debut. One hundred years young as the folks at Nabisco like to say. As for us, we'll be celebrating with some tasty Oreo Cookie recipes that have been so generously served up by Oreo Cookie lovers' themselves; YOU! Enjoy!

I had today's Oreo Birthday post all planned when it occurred to me that there are a batch of bakers out there who enjoy concocting all kinds of things with Oreo cookies. (Yes, they like to dunk them in milk too, seriously, who doesn't:)

Take this video for example. I for one would never imagine making Caviar with Oreos & Hot Sauce. Would you???

So, I tossed my original post for today and made a rather impromptu request for Oreo Cookie recipes late Sunday night via Twitter. I must admit, Twitter was indispensable in gathering links and permission from these contributors. Thank YOU everyone!!! (I've arranged it so you can click the images or the link to be taken to the recipes)

Gloria, hostess of the delicious Canela Kitchen, didn't have an Oreo Cookie recipe on hand so she took a quick trip over to the Kraft Kitchens and found us this recipe for Philly Oreo Cheesecake. Thank you sweet Gloria:) (And yes Gloria we will be playing the Picnic Game once again this year; I can't wait:)

Here's one more from the folks at Kraft:

Spring Oreo Cookie Balls

I did a quick search in my Hospitality Search Engine and found a few more recipe links for you to explore. Just think, this is the one and only time in our lives that we will be able to celebrate 100 years of Oreo Cookies. It seems to me, we should make the best of it. Don't you agree???

Thank you again to everyone. Just in case you're curious about Oreo Cookie History, like where the name Oreo came from, this link will take you to a previous post I did for Oreo's Birthday a while back. Also, if you know of an Oreo Cookie recipe link we may have missed, feel free to include it in the comment section below. Enjoy! Louise

What a great collection of treats! Have made my own oreos, I must admit that the homemade version is by far better than the original.

Cheers,

Rosa

Heather @girlichef.com said...

Yummy said...

Deep fried Oreos...drool...

Erica Retrochef said...

I looked through my old posts and not-yet-cooked bookmarked retro recipes, and couldn't find ANY that involved or even resembled Oreos. This is clearly an oversight on my part that should be resolved! (Maybe in time for next year's birthday...)

As always, a fascinating collection of information and deliciousness. And that vase is super-cute!!!

Angela/Soap Mom's Kitchen/Sutherland Soap Creamery said...

Thank you so much for including my muffins in this wonderful tribute to the Oreo. I checked out the history on the Oreo. Once again, I learned something new! Right now, I am imagining a Cookies and Cream Milk Shake. Smiling!

SissySees said...

Yum!! May I go home now and get some Oreos? I don't think I can wait 'til this afternoon...

Rita said...

you sure enlightened me about Oreo cookies; I think I would love that home made one.

My GOD, those are all divine looking! LOVE the Oreo Vase, so creative!

Kit @ i-lostinausten said...

What a lovely collection of Oreos! Absolutely marvelous! I'm so gonna bake few of these goodies from this post! Awesome post!

Marjie said...

A big package of Oreos might last an hour in this house. As far as the kids are concerned, the best recipe is: "Open. Beat your brothers to them."

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm dangerous around the golden oreos.

Janet Rudolph said...

Such a fun post! And, did you see the Limited Edition Birthday Cake Oreos? Love the confetti (sprinkles) in the creme..

Juliana said...

Louise, what a great collections of recipes with oreo cookies...you just reminded me that I haven't had oreo cookies for ages...
Thanks for the links and hope you are having a fabulous week :)

Reeni said...

You gave me a hankering for an oreo! I haven't had one in at least 8 years - maybe longer. I'm going to have make some homemade ones! I didn't have anything to contribute - I meant to get back to you sooner - thanks for asking Louise!

Kasha said...

Louise,
Let me just say that today has been a little emotional for me today, good and bad, and you were the good that helped erase the bad. Your comment brought tears to my eyes. How you kept track of Kate's birthday amongst all of your friends and family is beyond me. You are the kindest lady I will ever know.Thank you, thank you for that. I am so blown away.

On another note. I totally love Oreos and am celebrating. I bought some yesterday and they currently reside in my nightstand exactly where a person shouldn't have them, but the best place for me who loves to read and take 30 minutes with a treat and a book. Please have a great day and cheers to you with one oreo in my hand.

i've never been crazy about oreos as they are (i lick out the frosting and that's that!), but i like it when they're ground and tossed into other baked goods. that vase is awesome!
