Whoopie Pie Wednesday: Golden Oreo

Yes, a whoopie pie from one of the original whoopies. I mean...to not would almost be offensive and I try not be be, ya know, ever;) I will admit straight up what was not my favorite about this version...the yellow cake mix base. or the "golden" Oreo version if you will. Can I tell you a secret?! I've never tried the golden yellow version before, so not to offend the original, cause as we established, I am never offensive. like ever. or at least not in the last half hour. So I've just yet to jump the gun and wander to the dark(actually in this scenario, light)side. Maybe one day, is it worth it? I just have yet to meet someone who has excitedly exclaimed how "I must try the golden version" Ok...moving on.

Anyways, I went to the store to buy my ingredients for my Oreo goodness and it was not until I got home that I came upon the realization that on my trip to the inner depths of Hell Walmart, I inadvertently picked up the yellow cake instead of chocolate. And I contemplated going back for roughly .00001 seconds and rectifying the sadness. Then my senses quickly returned and I decided to finally "jump" to the "golden" side. Not my favorite, but definitely tastiness happening all over the place. So, what have we all learned today?! Other than I typed "golden" an exponential amount, we ascertained sometimes accidents work out. Here's to a favorable "accident" happening to you sooner rather than later;)




Ingredients
1 box yellow cake 
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil(canola or veggie)
1/4 cup milk(or water)

Filling
1 box Oreo pudding
6-8 oz cream cheese softened
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tbs heavy whipping cream
(or cool whip)

Preheat oven to 350'
Mix together dry cake mix, oil, eggs, and milk. The dough will be thick, I sometimes put in fridge for 1/2 an hour before putting on cookie sheet. I normally use a round TBSP to place on cookie sheet, but you can also use a round TSP to make them bite size and get more out of it. Bake 8-9 minutes, let cool.

For the filling
Cream softened cream cheese on low for 1 minute to get fluffy, add the pudding packet & tbs of whipping cream, beat until fully incorporated and slowly add the remaining whipping cream and beat until very stiff peaks begin to form. or for alternate version, prepare the pudding w/1 cup cold milk and mix w/cool whip. Place in fridge for hour to let either version set up. 

It may not be what I was aiming for...but it is still Oreo, so how can it be wrong when it's oh.so.right. haha yes, I just said that. You'll survive(I hope)
