very close to the real thing only better since they have that "homemade" taste. i suggest keeping with kathy's instruction of nickel size or even smaller. if they are bigger, they don't spread out as nice and once you add the filling and another layer it becomes a little awkward to bite. also, the smaller they are the crisper they are. if you want them bigger maybe press them out a bit before putting them in the oven. i've made these for the last couple of years and everyone loves them, especially my oreo-freak dad!!

I wouldn't call these a copy of oreos, but they are very good. The ease in which this mixes up, and the great taste and nice presentation makes this cookie a winner. (They look like they were time consuming to make but really weren't.) My kids are asking to make them for their AWANA's club cookie exchange. That's high praise. I mixed marshmallow fluff and creme cheese icing together for the filling as per another suggestion. The tops did slip from the bottoms a bit, probably due to the marshmallow fluff, but it tasted good. This looks like a cookie that can be experimented with different flavored cake mixes and canned frostings for versatility too. A keeper of a recipe. Thanks!

I have made these about 5 times since I first found the recipe 2 years ago (I can't believe I haven't reviewed it until now!). I love them! Just make sure you take the author's word for it and make them tiny! :D They get unwieldly if you go bigger than that. DEEE-licious!
