"If you had time you could make homemade Oreos if you want. Yours are the best."
Me: "I've never made homemade Oreos."
Ben: "I swear you made me some once? But only if you have time. Its totally cool if you don't."
Me: "Well, for your graduation, I bought you some Oreo Cakesters. But I will make you some if you want. It's no biggie."
Ben: "Ohh that's right. But ok awesome. I just hope I get time to try one!"
Ben is so funny. So I looked up a recipe on the internet. I was thinking it was going to be a pain to make them because I was already going to be canning peaches and making jam Saturday night. But the recipe I found was really simple. It even had a recipe for cream cheese frosting to go with it. Friday, I went grocery shopping, and got all the ingredients. Then Saturday, at around ten o'clock at night, after I had cleaned up all the mess from canning peaches and making jam, I was sitting at my computer playing WOW with Kurtis when suddenly, I exclaim, "Oh! Shoot! I forgot to make Ben homemade oreos!" "Are you going to?" Kurtis asked. I promised I would, so of course I did! I'm the bestest sister ever!
Here is the recipe I wrote down from the internet. Phsht! Please! Do I really seem like the kind of girl who would make her own cream cheese frosting? Um, no. Not when there is a perfectly excellent little jar of it sitting on a shelf in the super market! Betty Crocker needs to feed her family, too! ;)
Here is the finished product. I made mine a little bigger than dime shaped. They were all gone by the time I got back from church. But Ben saved me one! I had sneaked one last night, so I let Kaleb have it. In the future, if I make them for oh, say, Riley's baptism lunch, I think I will double or even triple the recipe, though. I made about two dozen (maybe a few more). I didn't really count them, or really care how many I brought because I was assigned the drinks. Even that was pretty sketchy. "Oh, only bring them if you want to, we can just drink water."
