HOMEMADE OREO COOKIES

Who doesn't love OREO's?
So if you like baking, like I do.....why not make them from scratch?
Of course they don't taste "exactly" like the storebought....but that's kind of the point too!  Fresh and delicious!


Recipe:
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar .....................mix these 5 ingredients together with an electric mixer.
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons room temp butter...................add into the above.
  • 1 egg..............add into the above.  It will appear very dry.  Keep mixing....even use your hands.
  • Form very small balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheets.  With damp fingers, press down cookie balls, slightly. Bake 7 mins in a 375' oven.
Filling:
  • 1/2 cup room temp butter
  • 1/2 vegetable shortening
  • 3 1/2 cups icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
(You will probably need about 3/4 of the icing recipe.....I usually end up with a little left over and I do apply a generous amount to each.  So you can opt to freeze it for another time or cut back on the recipe)









Enjoy!
