Oreo cookies seem to be pervasive in this country. Oreo cookies showed up at every party while I was growing up, and they are still used in countless desserts. My personal favorite is Oreo cheesecake (not to slight my Oreo cupcakes). Oreo cheesecake was in the dessert cycle in our cafeteria on Semester at Sea and I just couldn’t resist it!
I’ve always liked the Oreo, but since I could read and understand product labels, I’ve never been a fan of their ingredients.

Special thanks go to my mom who was my assistant baker for these Oreos. She was making a special visit to St. Louis so that she could touch my belly.
