See, you have to think about it for a second too. Or do I over think how categorize Oreo’s, just like I tend to over think preeeeetty much everything. It’s one of my special skills.
The first answer might be dessert… but then you think about dessert, and what I REALLY want for dessert a Oreo’s IN it, but it isn’t an Oreo in itself.
So then I think maybe it’s a snack. A not so healthy snack, but something I grab 6 of, throw in a ziplock bag and go on my way. By the way, when I say ‘grab 6’ that’s code for “grab as many as I can cram into 1 baggie and pretend like it’s 6 so I don’t feel as bad about eating so many.”
Which leaves me back in the same place I started, trying to figure out what category to put Oreo’s in. I guess I’ll have to just keep eating them until an answer comes to me… And it’s currently breakfast time… so then does that make Oreo’s a breakfast food? Oy Vey. I REALLY should stop over thinking this.
Since I still have no clue what category they fall in: snack, dessert oooooor breakfast… how about we just put them in all 3 and eat some Oreo Snack Cakes? These little cakes fall into all 3 categories.
Snack: Duh, it’s in the name.
Dessert: Did I heat 1 up in the microwave and add a few honin’ scoops of ice cream on top? Yep.
Breakfast: They’re like a muffin, and a muffin is really just a cupcake with out frosting. And I don’t see any frosting on here.
Notes about the snack cakes:
These rise a lot while baking.
The texture is light and airy, like a devil’s food cake.
The flavor is fabulous. The vanilla and almond extracts really give the little cakes a different flavor. And the oreos, well, they’re just fun and give the cakes a little crumble topping.
I’m always late wishing people happy birthday. Those ‘Happy Belated Birthday’ cards were invented for me, to save a little face when I sheepishly hand it to my husband 3 days past his birthday. Oops.
Keeping up with my not-so-great-tradition, I’m a day late wishing Oreo Cookies a ‘Happy Birthday.’
When I’m 100, I hope to look that good! I mean shoot, the cookie doesn’t even sag or wrinkle when you submerge it milk.
