Homeade Oreos

Are you looking for a special treat to make somebody in your life this Valentine's Day? Or are you looking for something you can hoard from your family when everybody is in bed and eat all by yourself watching repeats of The Bachelor? And maybe with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream?? And some drizzly hot fudge? Then this is the recipe for you!!! Homeade Oreos...


Ah yes, the classic oreo. We never had oreos in our house when I was growing up. My mom did a ton of cooking and baking so we always had homeade cookies somewhere, but never oreos. It wasn't until high school that I discovered the magic of these cookies, and then they came out with chocolate covered oreos. Oh wow, that changed my life. And my waistline. And not for the better. But NOW you can make them at home, and make them cuter than ever!


These are basically chocolate cut out cookies that I cut out with a simple circle cookie cutter. I then took a smaller heart cookie cutter and pressed it halfway into the circle. Then baked. I made the filling inside and found it a bit hard to spread over the cookie. So I ended up just plopping it on the cookie and smashing two sides together.


Yes, some of them became double stuff. And some are triple stuff. No judging.


They don't taste exactly like oreos, they were missing that crispy crunch of the cookie. But they were delicious and were devoured by my family in record time. What a fun recipe.


Here are the links to the recipes. I found these on the Bake at 350 food blog (which is a pretty amazing blog).

Chocolate Roll Out Cookies (I left out the espresso powder)
Cream Filling

You could even switch out the cookie cutter on the top to match any occasion. Hope you're having a great week so far! Thanks for stopping by...

i love how it looks so crisp! these clearly held their shape well when baked! may have to use these for my star wars cookie cutters, they constantly bleed into each other and lose their ultra fun geek shape!
thanks for posting!
