Next time you get a craving for cookies and milk, try Homemade Oreo Cookies
These soft and chewy Homemade Oreo Cookies always bring smiles wherever they go. So the next time you get a hankerin’ for dunkin’ cookies in milk, treat everybody (not to mention yourself!) to these adorable homemade chocolate sandwich cookies. Let’s take a look at how easy these really are to make!
How to make Homemade Oreo Cookies
Homemade Oreo Cookies start with a very basic simple chocolate cookie dough that’s baked for just 8 minutes per batch. You’ll start by creaming butter, brown and white sugars, an egg and some vanilla until smooth.
Next you’ll beat in the dry ingredients which include all-purpose flour, high-quality cocoa powder, baking soda and powder and a pinch of salt. I always recommend using a high quality cocoa in your baking, such as Hershey’s dark cocoa, Guittard rouge cocoa, Callebaut Baking Cocoa or any cocoa you can find that is dutch processed. This is the type of cocoa used in Oreo cookies and it really makes a huge difference in your baking, it’s so delicious!
Form cute little dough balls about an inch in diameter and place on a non-stick cookie sheet, or line a regular baking sheet with parchment paper so the cookies won’t stick when baked. Pop them in the oven for just 8 minutes and pull them out to cool.
While your little homemade oreo cookies bake in the oven, cream together butter, shortening, a little cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar for that delicious oreo cookie filling! Spread it onto the bottom of a cooled cookie and press another cookie on top. Take a bite-you’ve got to enjoy the fruits of your labors after all!
I just happened to have my OXO Cookie Press out and decided to use one of the disks as a ‘stencil’ to give my Homemade Oreo Cookies a little bit of holiday magic. This is totally optional; it happens to be Christmas time and I’ll be baking up more Homemade Oreo Cookies to give a way to friends and family on goodie plates.
Seriously, everyone you share these with will be delighted to try a real Homemade Oreo Cookie! They’re always best when made with love :0) Enjoy and please PLEASE leave me a comment below and RATE the recipe to help other readers. Thanks!Print
