Homemade Oreo-Style Cookies Recipe:

Recipe Type: Cookies, Christmas Cookie, Chocolate, Marshmallow Fluff/Cream
Yields: 25 to 30 cookies
Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 15 min


Ingredients:

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour
3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder*
Unsweetened cocoa powder (for dipping)
Marshmallow Cookie Filling (see recipe below)

* Regular unsweetened cocoa powder may be substituted.


Preparation:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Heavily grease cookie sheets or use the non-stick liners (Silpad).

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Add salt, egg, water, and vanilla extract; beat until smooth. Beat in the flour and cocoa powder until well combined (the dough will be stiff).

Roll the dough into balls into walnut-size balls, about 1/2-inch balls. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each ball until it is about 1/8-inch thick, using the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in cocoa powder.

Bake the cookies, one baking sheet at a time, for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and remove cookies from baking sheets to cooling racks. Let cookies completely cool before adding Cookie Filling.

Assemble Cookies: Spread approximately 1 to 2 tablespoons of Cookie Filling on one cookie (the recipe makes a large batch of filling, so be generous with your spreading of it). Place another cookie, equal in size to the first cookie, on top of the filling. Lightly press the two cookies together to work the filling evenly to the outside edges of the cookies. Repeat this process until all the cookies have been filled and sandwiched together.

Makes 25 to 30 Oreo-style sandwich cookies (depending on how big you make the cookies).
 

Marshmallow Cookie Filling:
Homemade Oreo-Style CookiesTrying to decide what type of filling to use in these cookies was a not easy, as I wanted the cookies to taste as close to the original Oreo cookies as possible. I settled on the marshmallow filling that is used in making Whoopie Pies.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
3 cups sifted powdered (confectioners') sugar
1 cup Marshmallow Creme*
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

* Marshmallow Fluff/Cream may be substituted (learn how to make).

In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, vegetable shortening, sugar, Marshmallow Creme, and vanilla extract. Turn the mixer on high and beat for 2 to 3 minute until the mixture is light and fluffy.
