Oreos


Oreos.

Great with milk. Great in ice cream. Great by themselves.


And now you can have homemade oreos. And you can put as much vanilla “creme” in the centres as you like!


These actually taste like oreos. That’s the first thing everyone said when they tried them.

The biscuits could be a little thicker. And a little denser maybe? But they do taste like oreos.


These cookies are chocolatey and crunchy and have a smooth, creamy vanilla frosting in the middle – like oreos.

You can even “twist, lick and dunk” them. They are sooooo good with milk.

(And my boyfriend made me this beautiful wooden board to take photos on. Go boyfriend.)


OREOS
Adapted from Flour and Smitten Kitchen.

For the cookies
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
140g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup + 2 tbsp)
1 egg

Get out your food processor or electric mixer. Put your flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt inside. Mix on a low speed until combined.

Add the butter and the egg. Continue to mix until a dough forms (be patient, it will form).

Gather the dough together and shape it into a log. Place it on a piece of parchment, roll it until it is about 40cm (just over a foot) long and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Take your log out of the fridge. Preheat the oven to 190 C and line 3 baking trays with parchment.

Slice 5mm (1/6 inch) cookie rounds from the log.


Place them on baking trays, leaving a small amount of room for spreading.

Bake for 7-8 minutes, until centres are set. While they cool, make your filling.

For the filling
110g unsalted butter, softened (1/2 cup)
1 2/3 icing sugar, sifted (230g)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp milk
pinch of salt

Put the butter in the bowl of your electric mixer and beat on a low speed until completely smooth and soft.

Add the icing sugar and vanilla, increase the speed to medium and beat until the mixture is completely smooth.

Add the milk and salt and continue to beat until smooth.

The mixture will look like putty. Put it into a piping bag (or into a zip lock/plastic bag and snip the corner off).

Once the cookies are cool, it is time to fill them!

Pipe a round of filling onto every second cookie.


Place another cookie on top of the filling and press down until the filling almost reaches the edges of the sandwich. Repeat. Makes about 30 oreos.


Dunk into milk and gobble up.
