Oreomisu

What’s up with Oreo Cookies? Is it their chocolate wafer that doesn’t even taste like chocolate? Is it their vanilla filling that just tastes like sugar? I don’t know, but what I know is that when you eat an oreo cookie they taste like… well, they taste like Oreo… I think what’s up with them is that they’ve created the a new flavour: the oreo flavour! And let’s face it, oreo flavour tastes good!

Is this a triple Oreo Cookie?

And so if Jenny can use them to make cookies and Emiline can use them to make brownies, I can use them to make tiramisu, or should I say Oreomisu?!

Let me just have a taste...

OREOMISU (for 2)

  • 6 oreo cookies
  • 2 tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tsp icing sugar
  • 2 drops vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup milk

Break apart the oreo cookies and scrape the filling to a bowl and set aside the wafers. To the oreo fillings add the mascarpone and icing sugar and mix well with a small wisk. Mix the milk and the vanilla extract and make crumbs out of 2 wafers (you can do this with your fingers or press them with the bottom of a glass or roling pin).

In small serving plates arrange alternatively the chocolate wafers dipped in the milk and the mascarpone cream. Start with a wafer and use 5 for each oreomisu, finish with mascarpone cream. Top with the wafer crumbs and refrigerate.

Who ate half of it allready?

Good thing about this is that you can make it while you prepare dinner and have it in time for dessert. Also you can do little plated portions like I did or just multiply the recipe and make it in a bowl with layers of oreo wafers next to each other, like you would use ladyfingers in a normal tiramisu.

I didn't use coffee because I wanted to have that clear oreo flavour I was talking about before, but I'm sure it would work great as well. If you like Oreos and tiramisu, you'll love this!

Who's going to have that spoon?

You don't need a Cake Lifter to do the Oreomisu, but if you want one don't forget to enter the Giveaway!

Oh my girl, you know I am soooo making these today. I just bought some mascarpone over the weekend. Let's just see how many cool things we can do with Oreos!! They look awesome! Drats, I should have added them to my latest enchiladas!

Kristen said...

This looks AMAZING, and rich, and like a heart attack on a plate. OMG - yum!

Ann said...

Oh, YUM! Sinful. I cannot TELL YOU how much I end up tasting while I bake/photo etcetera - it's just awful....or, wonderful, depending how you look at it...

Dhanggit said...

oh i just simply love this!! OMG im gaining weight just by looking at this!! yum

ayankeeinasouthernkitchen said...

I don't use mascarpone much and think I am missing out as this looks so good.

Sharon said...

This makes such an impressive looking dessert! I'd love to make this when I have company over.

Cakespy said...

This looks simply amazing--it combines so many things that are wonderful in our world. Yes!!

Rachel said...

Decadent!!!!

Leslie said...

Oh so yummy...funny you posted this..I was thinking the other day what I could do with disassembled Oreos!! You beat me to it!!

Aran said...

que decadente!

Aggie said...

Oh my my my....that looks unbelievable! My poor kids...they are deprived of Oreos b/c if I bring them in the house bad things happen...like me eating the whole bag! Awesome dessert!

Adam said...

Ha I love it! Ya know, I never put that much effort into why oreo's taste good. You're so right... the chocolate isn't chocolate, and the filling is just sugar.

Maybe it's because deep down we're just simple sugar fiends. Well, friends and fiends :)

Emiline said...

YAY!!! I'm so excited! This looks amazing, and it's such a great idea.
I want.

Mansi Desai said...

wow, its like 2 divine recipes mixed to form an even more divine creation! looks delectable:)

CookiePie said...

Brilliant! Usually I think oreos are too perfect on their own to mess with, but oreomisu?? Yes, please!!

Clumbsy Cookie said...

Jenny- I've seen the enchiladas and hey a few oreos wouldn't kill them! Lol!

Kristen- They're rich but so small, you want have a heart attack!

Ann- That's because we like to show the inside of things!

Dhanggit- Lol! No, don't worry these are almost light, lol!

Yankee- Mascarpone is great, I love it!

Sharon- oh make it to yourself, you're worth it!

Cakespy- Combining is the key!

Rachel- Lol, maybe a little decadent yes!

Leslie- I hope you still do something!

Aran- Gracias guapa!

Aggie- That's way we don't buy them as often here as well!

Adam- Yes sugar fiends and sugar friends, very close freinds indeed!

Emiline- You want? You make, you eat! Lol!

Mansi- Thank you :)!

Cookipie- Lol! You're right, they're pretty good alone!

Susan from Food Blogga said...

Aaahhh! I LOVE this! :)

Sweet Tooth said...

Ingenious! I am fond of Oreos too - ever since we almost ran out of desserts during a guest appearance in Japan. Military base equals American supplies equals Oreos in a pinch. Mix them with vanilla Bavarian Cream and you got "Cookies and Cream" in a glass.

But mix them this way and you are even more lucky it seems.

Tanya said...

You always come up with the most creative desserts! I'm always surprised by what you come up with, but you know what? It always looks delicious! This is no exception. That dessert looks to die for!

Tartelette said...

Oh my! My husband would totally divorce me for this!! He is an Oreo freak!! Awesome!!

Lina said...

I want to drown in that! I looooove Oreos but I know they are so bad for you! You made oreos look so elegant! I REALLLY want to try this! Do they even have Oreos in Portugal?

Lisa said...

OOOh! AHHHH! OOOH! Ahhhh!

This looks delicious!

Ingrid said...

Hi,
You are so right about the oreos. I won't eat one just on it's own but I will eat up anything that has them in it.
Your oreomisu looks Yummy with a capital Y! I'm gonna have to add this to may "must make" list!
Thanks!
Ingrid

Sophie said...

What a fun idea...I always thought oreos didn't have enough layers :D!

Prudy said...

That looks so classy and grown up-who would know it's your childhood favorite oreos. Yum!

morgana said...

Creo que ya te lo he dicho en alguna otra ocasión, pero me repito. ERES UN GENIO.

No sé si usar la expresión que más se usa en plan admirativo por estos lares, quedaría un poco fuerte y nada correcto políticamente, pero vendría tan bien...

Lo dicho. ¡¡ Qué imaginación !! Me encanta.

Clumbsy Cookie said...

Susan- Me too, lol!

Alexandra- Cookies and cream in a glass sounds pretty good too! That must have been funny!

Tanya- Thank you sweetie, I'm really happy to hear that!

Helen- Oh no please, I don't want to be guilty of a divorce. Please make it for him, ahahah!

Lina- Oh yes we do have oreos, we even have the chocolate covered kind. They're so goood!

Lisa- Lol! It was delicious!

Ingrid- Thanks with a capital T!

Sophie- So now you know, you can make a lot od oreo layers!

Prudy- Yes it does make oreos look a grownup thing!

Morgana- Gracias guapa, tus comentarios siempre me dejan con una sonrisa en la cara!

Lore said...

Seriously! Ok my question is how many oreo's did you have to open to get the perfect cookie. I always break some when I try to separate them. This looks amazing.

Snooky doodle said...

Manuela said...

Estas bolachas são uma perdição... Não sabemos bem a que é que sabem, mas que sabem bem lá isso não há dúvidas :)
Esse Oreomisu deixa qualquer um a salivar...
Lembrei-me que tenho uma receita de tarte de bolachas Oreo que há tempos que já não faço...

Wow, an improvement on Oreos? I wouldn't have thought it possible. They look fan-TAS-tic!

Great idea!

Terri's Table said...

These look amazing and I can't believe I've found a dessert for only two! I always wind up giving away over half of a cake or pie or whatever, because it's too much (and too tempting). I am trying this tomorrow!

Lo said...

This looks absolutely fantastic. I love the pretty little layers!

Liz said...

OMG, are you kidding me?! This looks AMAZING. I think I'll have to try this with mint oreos.

Honeybunny said...

Wow!! This looks so yummy, I think I'm going to take the plunge and try Oresos for the first time!!
This looks simply lush!!
Can't wait to try it out!
Honeybun

Honeybunny said...

Oops, 'course I meant "Oreos" ;-)

Zen Chef said...

Did you trademark that idea yet? How do you come up with all these cool ideas? :-)

ali said...

hey... sorry i dont know if this was already asked but i didnt feel like reading through 85 comments...

what is the texture of these? is it similar to the icebox cake made from chocolate wafers and whipped cream?

they looks fantastic! (tho i must admit i've never had marscarpone cheese before and wouldn't even know where to get it!)

sudokucombat said...

Here is my take on the oreomisu. It was delicious!
