Homemade Oreos

This recipe comes from my sister-in-law Stephanie. These are always very popular, and might even be considered whoopie pies because of their rather cakey chocolate cookies and white filling. Whatever they’re called, they’re always delicious.

I haven’t tried making this gluten free yet, but you’ll want to use gluten free cake mixes and check the texture before baking.
