p 1 (18.25 oz) box Dark Fudge Cake Mixbr /
1/3 cup waterbr /
2 tablespoons shortening/p

1/2 tablespoon granulated sugarbr /

1/2 cup shortening (no substitution)br /
3 tablespoons hot water/p
p Preheat oven to 325F. Blend all ingredients; then knead with yourbr /
hands until it is pliable like dough. Form dough into 3/4 inch ballsbr /
and press flat, 1/2 inch apart on greased cookie sheets. Bottom ofbr /
a glass works nice for this. Bake 4 to 6 minutes or until cookies arebr /
crunchy. I should think you could refrigerate the dough in cylinderbr /
shaped rolls for a couple of hours and slice 1/8 inch thick, as well.br /
Let cookies cool on sheets. /p
p Combine filling ingredients and mix well. Form into balls about 1/2 tobr /
3/4 inch in diameter, again using your hands. Sandwich onebr /
filling in the center of two cookies and carefully press down untilbr /
the filling spreads almost to the edge./p
p Makes 2 dozen cookies (4 dozen wafers)/p

Gosh, I can't remember where I read this recently, but I read that coconut is considered a fruit.

Coconuts are definately fruits and NOT nuts. However, a lot of people have coconut allergies. My son who is PA is not allergic to coconuts and has things with coconuts and coconut oil all the time.

Thanks Ryansmom and Kelly01. I'll start giving him the Oreos again! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] This whole PA thing is a little frustrating.

Hi,
What brand of cake mix do you use? I have been afraid to use any commercial mixes.

kstreeter, my DH just recently reminded me of a cookbook that I had been e-mailed. It has a lot of "brand name" recipes in it and I felt that they might go well on this website because of some of us not feeling "safe" with the actual store bought or restaurant made product. What I'm trying to say is that I'm sharing these recipes but I haven't tried them. What I would like to do is contact another PA parent and see if she could suggest a cake mix brand that would be "safe".
I know that in a couple of the multitude of recipes I have been posting out of this book, I have mentioned that I have not made them myself, but I do know a lot of PA parents that will try them if they are posted here.
What I'm actually hoping is that if someone does make any of the recipes that aren't "tried and true", they might come in and post that the recipe did or didn't come out well.
I didn't want to have to put that warning in with each recipe (I still have quite a few to go).
Again, I will contact the one PA parent to see if she can help you out. My apologies.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

kstreeter, I am still trying to find out what cake mixes would be considered "safe" in the U.S. The one PA parent I contacted is Canadian and she makes her cakes from scratch, when she makes them. I don't make cakes very often at all, but I also make them from scratch.
As soon as I can get an answer, I'll post it for you.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I use Betty Crocker as well as Duncun Hines. I do make a lot from scratch, but I feel safe with both of those. But I MUST say that I have NOT called those manufactures. I trust their labels (that's my comfort level). Betty Crocker lists allergy info in bold print under their ingreds.

Jackie, thank-you! I haven't tried any of them because I'm not a "recipe" person, but my DH had reminded me about the e-mail recipe book I had received and I recognized that there were a lot of name brands in there that people may like to try. I know a lot of us might not feel comfortable going into McDonald's, but we might feel comfortable enough trying out one of their recipes.
And really, thanks must really go to Cayley's Mom who showed me how to Control C, Control V, which makes putting 2 recipes on here a night no problem at all.
Also, The Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf recipe I posted this week was a "tried and true" recipe. I think earlier ones I put on the board also were - the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins, Carrot Muffins and Tabouli Salad.
It's just the batch of Brand Name ones that aren't "tried and true". I am hoping people will come in and say if they worked out okay or not.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I've tried this recipe with minor changes in the filling. I used 3 3/4 cps. powd. sugar and 2 Tbs. of hot water. I don't think that really will make a difference, though. Personally, I rather use Betty Crocker than Duncan Hines, but that's my comfort zone speaking, not taste preference.
These are really good cookies. My family likes them better than store-bought Oreos because you can control the crunchiness of the cookie--we like softer ones. In fact, I made these for my daughter to take to school for her birthday treat for the class. One of the kids was begging her for the recipe.
A word to the wise, however. Don't feel the need to double the filling recipe. It will provide plenty! If you want near-black cookies, I add some Wilton Black Icing paste color to the cookies dough. Again, Wilton icings are in my comfort zone.
Give this recipe a thumbs up!

Ryan's Mom, this is great! You're actually able to go through quite a few of the recipes I posted and let us know that they're "tried and true". Thank-you SO much. You do not know how much that means to me (because I posted them without trying them) and to the people that may have wanted to try them but also knew that I hadn't tried them!
Wonderful, thank-you.

The FAN newsletter I got yesterday said that the PB Oreos (obviously) and a Mint Swirl oreo are sharing a line and therefore the mint ones are maked as "may contain". Any other "non-swirled" Oreos are still OK.

Here is my chocolate chip cookie recipe that others (ie: Connielynn, etc) have been asking for...
This is the chocolate chip cookie recipe I use. It comes from Hershey Canada. The cookies turn out really good:
175 ML (3/4 cup) butter
250 ML (1 cup) brown sugar
125 ML (0.5 cup) white sugar
5 ML (1 teaspoon) vanilla
2 eggs (large)
500 ML (2 cups) unsifted all purpose flour
5 ML (1 teaspoon) baking soda
5 ML (1 teaspoon) salt
300 g (1 package) Hershey semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla.
Add eggs and beat well.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoonfulls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 190C (375F) for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Cool slightly before removing from sheet.
Makes about 7 dozen cookies (or less depending on how large you make each cookie).
Hope they turn out well for you too.

Hi! What brand of cake mix do you use for the oreos? I haven't found a Betty Crocker one with that particular name. There is a brownie mix that sounds similar...???

kstreeter, I'm sorry, I can't help you out with that one. I have never made the Oreo cookies [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] I don't use cake mixes either.
I had a Brand Name Recipe book e-mailed to me a couple of years ago and it was my little *thing* I did for awhile here. I would take out brand name recipes that I thought people might be able to use here because they may not feel comfortable eating out or they may not feel okay with the manufacturer. I forget how many recipes I posted in that little streak of mine, but there were quite a few.
I never made one of them. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] I'm sorry.
Hopefully someone else will see this though and help you out with the cake mix.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I recently found out that the Shaw's brand of chocolate graham crackers were safe. So I used the filling on the recipe Cindy provided and used the chocolate grahams. My son loved them!

8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 lb. powdered sugar
Beat ingredients together and then spread between two cookies.
HINT: press the cookie dough down with a small glass.
You can't eat just one!!!

I see you are new. If you do a search, you will find other threads about Oreos, some fairly recent.
But to answer your question, yes, I give my DS Oreos. But I read the label every time. And you will find that there are some here that don't give their child Oreos. I trust Kraft's labeling (they are Nabisco's parent company), but they have had a couple of recalls concerning allergies in the past year.

Be REALLY careful on this one as it put us in the hospital once! Oreo cookies are fine and so are gummy bears (or they were once upon a time). But at a birthday party my son received in his "party bag" an oreo cookie/ gummy bear combo product in a little unit-of-use manufactured tin by the oreo company. Well it DID contain peanut oil for some unknown reason and it got by us!!! So as we all would say on this site, always double check!

Yes, I have found that different flavors of Quaker rice cakes have different warnings (or lack of warnings) on them. So they must label the ones that are made on the same equipment as the ones with peanut butter in them, and the others without the warnings must be made on separate equipment. I like that kind of labeling. We have eaten the Quaker caramel corn rice cakes for that reason. When I e-mailed Nabisco about Oreos, they said we should check the label of each package of Oreos because they will tell you if they ran on the same machines as the peanut butter ones, and that can change at any time. So I do feel fine about feeding my DD Oreos.

BTW, there was a recall on Oreo's during the last 6 to 9 months due to peanuts.

Nope we don't allow PA son to have Nabisco Oreos. Or anything else from Nabisco. I had called them several times on several different items, and I just never liked the answers I got from them. They didn't ever want to come clean on whether or not they were being produced in a facility.... They claimed that their "washing methods" were thorough enough to remove ALL risk, so they didn't feel the need to reveal which products were in safe facilities & which weren't. So the last time I called I listened to their canned response, then gave one of my own. I told them that answer wasn't good enough for some one severely allergic, and that I wanted her to be sure & report that to her superiors, and that we wouldn't be buying anything with the "red triangle" again. My son was too young to read when this all happened, so he still thinks that the red trianlge just means peanuts instead of Nabisco.
Some times I think of trying again, but then I realize that we don't need any of the stuff that they make, it's mostly junk food anyway - I'm better off making a batch of cookies or brownies at home.

Yes, we do. But only the plain or double stuffed and only after RECHECKING the label EVERY time. Nabisco doesn't bold or note 'traces of' for allergens, they just lump pn in the rest of the ingredients if there is a chance for cross contamination. A company I'm always leary of, and always am extra careful to recheck the Oreos label.

I called Nabisco September last year. I found them to be very helpful. I was told that the PB oreos are now made in a different facility. (this was after one of the recent recalls). They said if there ever would be any chance of Cros contamination, they would list it in the ingredient statement.
