I love homemade oreos. I usually make them from a boxed cake. I also love lemon! I decided, why not combine the two and make Lemon oreos!! Mmmmm....
Combine yellow cake mix with a stick of butter and mix well. Add 1 egg and 2 tsp of fresh lemon juice and 1 tsp lemon zest.
It will look like this. It should be thick enough to scoop and plop.
Scoop into balls on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
They look like this. Now fill with lemon infused cream cheese frosting...
And you have yourself some lemon oreos! Mmmmm..
