Delicious & Rich Oreo Cookies Recipe

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 stick of softened unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp of half and half
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

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!
