Homemade Oreos

Well... they are not exactly Oreos, more a chocolate sandwich cookie that slightly resembles America's favorite cookie. They are absolutely delicious, chocolatey with a vanilla cream filling and are perfect for dunking in a glass of milk! These were a party favorite when I made them for a family birthday party... enjoy!

Homemade Oreos

1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa (the darker the better)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1 large egg

Vanilla Cream Filling:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 tsp salt
Heavy cream to taste/texture preference
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix in the flour mixture until dough forms. Scoop dough onto a silpat and flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake for 8-9 minutes.

Beat the butter and salt until fluffy. Mix in vanilla and sifted confectioner's sugar. Once the cookies have cooled completely pipe a generous amount of cream in the center and lightly press cookie on top.
