Homemade Cookie Dough “Oreos”

I’m posting Cookie Dough “Oreos” today. Yup. Chocolate cookies with (edible) raw chocolate chip cookie dough sandwiched between them!
 
Did you know Oreo makes these now?! Or at least they make Oreos that are supposed to taste like cookie dough. Of course, I had to try them. They’re actually pretty good, but I don’t think they tasted like cookie dough. More like coffee/ mocha/ brown sugar. They’re good, but I think I prefer regular Oreos.These Cookie Dough Oreos inspired my very own version of the treat.
 
I used the same Chocolate Roll Out Cookie recipe that I used when I made Homemade Oreos, except I used regular cocoa powder. I also used the same small round cutter.
Then I made THIS Cookie Dough (it’s the same one I use for EVERYTHING). Obviously I didn’t use the bite sized candies.
 
I made both cookie doughs the night before, and kept them in the fridge until I was ready to use them.
 
After I got all the chocolate cookies cut out and baked I set them out to cool on wire racks.
 
Next I divided the chocolate chip cookie dough into 48 balls. You can probably do this by dividing the dough in half, then in half again, and again, and again… get my drift? Then I shaped each ball into a disc the same size as the chocolate cookies.
 
This is where I ran into a problem… my cookies wouldn’t stick together! It was kind of tragic. But lucky for me I had some chocolate candy melts sitting around. I melted some, then drizzled it over the bottom of the chocolate cookies and stuck the cookie dough to that! I WIN!
 
Store these in the fridge and try not to eat them all. It’s going to be difficult.
 
Happy baking & making!

Homemade Copycat Oreos and SnickerDoodles!

I love Oreos. They were my favorite snack when I was a kid. Mom used to keep them in this Tupperware (actual Tupperware) container, and about halfway thru the bag they’d start to get a little stale… because that was before they made the bags that seal themselves. But honestly… I still eat my Oreo’s a little stale.
These… are not stale. And they’re not quite Oreos. My cookie is a little sweeter and not as crunchy and the cream isn’t as sturdy. It kinda squishes out when you bite into the cookie. I think that because the cookies aren’t crispy it makes the cream seem less sturdy. Does that make sense?
The cookie is adapted from a chocolate roll out recipe on AllRecipes (and the same recipe I used to make the cookies last week). I used a small biscuit cutter to cut ut my cookies, so they’re slightly bigger than regular Oreos.
The Oreo Cream recipe is from FoodNetwork.com. Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve NEVER used shortening before? It always kind of grossed me out. I’m not really sure why… I think ‘cause it’s like a giant tub of fat/ grease. Kind of like the drippings from bacon. :::Shudder::: I got over it ‘cause I couldn’t find an Oreo Recipe that DIDN’T use it. I assumed it was important.
Hubs told me this homemade version is better than regular Oreos. I like them the same. Click HERE to see my RECIPE!
 

I also made these Snicker Doodles (w/ Snickers!) from Picky Palate.
I changed 2 things:
1) I used 12 fun sized Snickers
2) I keep a cinnamon & sugar mix in the pantry (it’s probably ¼ cinnamon & ¾ sugar). I used a tablespoon to scoop the cookies, rolled them into balls, then tossed them in the mixture.
They are aaaaaaah-maaaaaaaazing.
 
You should go bake one (or both) of these recipes. Right. Now.
Happy Baking.
