"Good" can be subjective....

If you have a butter based b/c recipe you like, why not just add crushed Oreos/Oreo pieces to it? icon_smile.gif

I've tried that, but I cant really taste the oreo. Its a bit grey and bland...

The bride is from US, so it needs to be similiar to what she is used to.

At least I am getting to eat lot of oreos, I love them!!

This uses Oreo cookies and looks delicious!!

Cookies and Cream Frosting - JessDesserts
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
a pinch of salt
2/3 cup vanilla coffee creamer
1 tsp vanilla extract ( or 1/2 marshmallow extract if you have it)
remaining crushed Oreos
* Mix together butter, confectioners sugar, and a pinch of salt until its creamy. Increase your mixer speed to high and beat until its light
and fluffy. Add creamer and vanilla. Beat until its smooth. Fold in crushed Oreos. Makes enough to frost 24 cupcakes.

It says remaining Oreo's as it goes with a cupcake recipe that calles for Oreo's. I think it is pretty versatile as to how many you want to add but here is the cupcake recipe also:

Cookies and Cream Cupcakes (Makes 22-24) - JessDesserts
30 Oreo cookies
1 package (18.25 ounces) plain white cake mix
1-1/3 c water (or a mix of water/vanilla creamer)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

*Count out 12 Oreos and separate the top and bottom wafers. Make sure each has some of the icing on it. Place one wafer, icing side up, in the bottom of each paper liner.
*Place the remaining 18 Oreos between sheets of waxed paper or in a large, closed zipper-lock bag and crush them by rolling over them with a rolling pin. Set these crumbs aside.
*Mix all ingredients except crushed oreos. When batter is thoroughly incorporated, fold in 1 & 1/2 cups crushed Oreos.
* Spoon batter into cupcake liners. Approx 1/3 cup ( I use an ice cream scooper which is super-easy!
*Bake approx. 17-18 minutes. Let cool before frosting. *I replaced the oreos with double stuff MINT oreos and I took a bite and said "thats whoa". I am talking too freaking good to describe.

just another idea in case you don't get what you want from this one for flavor--you could always spread your vanilla b/c (or oreo) and then sprinkle the top with extra crushed oreos for good measure so you have some that don't get so macerated in the mixing process. I would maybe even spread a thin layer of bc on the top layer of the cake going on top of the filling to "seal" the crushed oreos in. Just a thought--not sure how well it would work, but it's what I would try icon_smile.gif
