The 10 Reasons I Always Keep Oreos in My Pantry

If there’s one thing I always keep hidden away in my pantry, it’s a package of Oreos. Although there’s new flavors popping up everyday, nothing can beat the original: a chocolate cookie with a creamy filling. And who can resist? It is, after all, milk’s favorite cookies.

While you can sometimes find me sneaking a cookie in the middle of the night, most of the time I use Oreo cookies as a base to a variety of different desserts and sweet treats such as Oreo truffles, Oreo fudge, and of course, Oreo cookie dough. Keep your chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies. These 10 dessert recipes are the reason I love Oreos so much.


Reminiscent of the county fair, these “Deep Fried” how to keep oreos fresh are actually baked in the oven with the help of refrigerated crescent rolls acting as the fried coating around the cookie.

Mold the dough with your hands to form around the Oreo and then (here’s the secret part) dunk the Oreo in a glass of milk and place in the dough. Once baked, top the treat with powdered sugar and eat ASAP.
