You can recognize Oreo cookies almost immediately; it’s the world’s best-selling cookie, with good reason!
Before you dive into chocolate decadence, twist open a few Oreos and read these fun facts (but save some for the recipe!)
Oreo cookies were first created in 1912 at the original Nabisco bakery in New York City (the factory is present day Chelsea Market) and sold in a tin for 30 cents per pound. The first Oreo cookie was sold in Hoboken, NJ.
When they first debuted, there was also a lemon meringue flavor of Oreos. The flavor was discontinued in the 1920s.
Women rather than men are more likely to pull their Oreos apart before eating them.
Oreos became Kosher in December 1997.
National Oreo Day is March 6th!

4 tbsp butter, melted
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
