Homemade Oreos


I officially have a new obsession – Pinterest. As a result of my recent “pinning” excursions, I have found many different intriguing and recipes that look absolutely delicious. One particular recipe that caught my eye was Homemade Oreos via the blog Sugar Cooking. Oreos have always been a childhood favorite of mine as well as a guilty pleasure. The thought of making these had never previously popped into my mind; however, after seeing that picture, it was all I could think about. After all, sometimes, homemade re-creations just seem better and it’s something I’m always more proud of (as long as it turns out well, of course!).

Step 1: Mix Sugars, Chocolate, Butter
and Egg Together to Form Dough 




Step 2: Form Dough Into Balls, Flatten and Bake


Step 3: Cream Powdered Sugar With
Vanilla Extract and Butter for Frosting 



Step 4: Spread Frosting Between Two
Cookies and Enjoy With Milk 

It is so hard to only eat just one Oreo. In this case, my individual gigantic Oreos resulted in the size of at least three Oreos. So, I guess that means I only get to eat one? Maybe?

Because of their size, these Oreos resemble more of a whoopie pie than the classic Oreo (note: make the dough balls extremely small – even smaller than you consider to be “small”). Nonetheless, they definitely tasted like them. With a  simple bake time of nine minutes and a requirement of normal household ingredients, these are a must-try!

Cheers!
