Oreo-Style Cookies are a delicious dark chocolate delight. These are also called Sandwich Cookies. The flavor of these cookies comes very close to matching the taste of the original Oreo cookies. Oreo-Style Cookies are not as crunchy as the authentic, but they are not as soft and cakey as whoopie pies either – they are in between.
You can make them any size you like. If you choose to make them large, be sure to have a big glass of milk standing-by ready for dunking. They are also very similar to Whoopie Pies.

Marshmallow Cookie Filling:
Trying 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.
