Homemade Oreos

Everyone in my family knows that my favorite cookie has always been an Oreo so this has been on my list for a long time. My little grandson already likes them and he gives me a big smile when I bring out the package of Oreo's to share with him.  Of course I only do this after he has finished eating all his healthy food. Grandma's are allowed to do things like that. That's why its fun to go to Grandma's house. I'm not saying that these taste exactly like the original Oreos but they are close.  This recipe is from Sally's Baking Addiction.

Ingredients:
1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract

filling:
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature
1-3/4 cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
In a large bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl beat the butter until light and creamy about 1 minute.  Then add the sugar and brown sugar and beat until well combined.  Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low speed until combined.



Cover the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Remove the chilled cookie dough from the refrigerator.  Roll the dough into small balls about 2 tsps of dough per ball and then put them on a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper covering it.  Press down on the balls to flatten the tops. The bottom of a glass works good for this.


Bake for 6 to 8 minutes.  They will still appear soft when done but they will harden more as they cool.  Allow to cool on a cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.

For the filling:  In a small bowl beat the butter and shortening together until creamy.  Add the confectioners sugar and vanilla and beat until creamy.


Spread the filling between two cooled chocolate cookies and then repeat until all cookies are paired with the filling in between them.  Cookies will stay fresh for up to one week covered at room temperature.


Enjoy!!
