I have always loved eating Oreo cookies! Especially when I was a little girl. I remember sitting down during lunchtime at school and twisting them open to eat the frosting in the middle because that was my favorite part.
Then I would devour the cookies, ha! Just curious, but how many of you would eat your Oreo cookies the same way?
Anyways, I decided to make from scratch a batch of fresh homemade Oreo cookies! Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. I highly recommend making this because it is a lot easier to make than you think.
What You Need
- (makes 2 dozen cookies)
- 2 sticks of softened unsalted butter
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup of dutch process cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 stick of softened unsalted butter
- 3 tbsp of half and half
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- 4 cups of powdered sugar
What You Need To Do
- In a bowl mix together the 2 sticks of butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer.
- Once that is mixed well together add the egg and vanilla extract and blend.
- In a separate bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
- Then add it to the butter mixture.
- Once you have mixed the butter and flour mixture together, split the dough in half and wrap it with plastic wrap.
- Shape it into a disk and refrigerate it for about an hour.
- When the dough has chilled take it out of the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Then grab some flour and spread it on a flat surface to work on.
- Flour the rolling pin and cookie dough as well and begin rolling out the dough.
- Roll out the dough until it is a 1/4 inch thick then use any shape cookie cutter to cut the shapes out.
- Place the cookies on an oven tray covered with parchment paper and cook them for 12 minutes in the oven.
- When they are done take them out to cool for about 10 minutes. While the cookies cool down begin to make the filling.
- In a bowl mix together the butter, half and half, vanilla extract, and salt with an electric hand mixer.
- Then slowly add in the 4 cups of powdered sugar and continue blending until smooth and creamy.
- Place the filling in a piping bag with a tip and frost the bottom side of the cookie and top it with another cookie.
- It should look like a mini macaroon.
Now enjoy and eat all the cookies you just made!
