The dough is good, be careful to make small little balls of it or you'll end up with huge cookies! The filling is good - be sure to sift a couple times and whip the heck out of it till really fluffy. Together - divine! And to really get the Oreo taste, hide them for a couple days - they mellow sooo nicely! I made one batch for my grown son who came for a visit and I've just made a second batch for work where I know they will be devoured. Addendum: The "original" recipe I found calls for 1/2 cup plus 2 T butter and the dough is perfect.
I can't give this five stars yet... every time we make them, we eat the cookies before we can make the filling! The batter is a little fussy to make (a little on the dry side), but well worth it.
I have looked at several recipes for homemade oreos, on different sites. And this is a very unique oreo recipe. I found 27 recipes for the devil's food cake mix - oreo recipe and I was actually looking for a hard cookie recipe. I liked this recipe a lot. So did some family members. The only two people who would not even taste it hate oreos. Very Good.
These were good, but I had a little trouble putting them together. I tried melting the butter in the batter, but it was too dry. Maybe next time I'll add milk or water to soften it. The sugar filling was also dry. I think 1 1/2 cups would have been enough sugar. And instead of slightly flattening the spoonfuls of batter, I had to press very hard to get a reasonably flat cookie. I really want to try this again some time; and thank you for the recipe!
I just finished making these and I wasn't sure if the butter should be melted or not. I didn't melt or soften it. The dough won't come together in a ball, so added water until it did. The flavor is great. Ate half a cookie and will enjoy the rest another time. Very rich!
Young lady you have awakened the cookie monster in me that I didn't know exsisted. Like Kimngabe_mommy I used your filling to glue chocolate chip cookies together. I made 46 cookies. We had company the animals ANIMALS left me two (2). BUT, I have the recipe for both the filling and the cookies. Four of the seven folks are still pleading for it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Okay, the only reason I can't give this 5 stars is because I didn't make the whole recipe. I just made the filling to use for my chocolate chip cookies. This tasted EXACTLY like oreo filing, and I will definitely be making the whole recipe soon! Thanks so much for posting!
Are you kidding?! These taste exactly like the ones from the store, but better. I was the hit of the party. Seriously, I had to xerox the recipe for everyone at work the next day. You have to try this. I ordered the black cocoa from King Arthur Flour online, only 6 dollars for a lot. And I'll need it to make these a lot more times !
Great recipe! They were so easy to make and so delicious. I made the filling with coconut oil which gave them a great flavor. I loved watching people try to figure out what was in the filling. Iâ€™m sure I will be getting requests for this recipe. Thanks!
