“Faux”-reos…

1 Nov

I love Oreos – I mean I really LOVE Oreos. I once ate nearly a pound of them only to hear my husband ask, “Where are the Oreos?” “I ate them!” “All of them?” “Yeah…is there a problem?” We rarely have Oreos in the house, anymore. (True confession: my new weakness is Oreo thins that, mercifully, may be bought at Costco in individual, four cookie packets. And, I limit myself to one packet a day.)

Anyway, these Chocolate Creme Sandwiches are pretty darn close to Oreos! I managed to cut out enough cookies for 25-sandwiches. (I did increase the filling recipe by using 1-stick of butter and 200 g of confectioner’s sugar.) Using a #60 scoop left me just short of filling, but next time I’ll use a #100 scoop – there will be less filling, but for me, it’s all about the cookie rather than the filling. And, these cookies are delicious! Nice, dark, bitter chocolate; not too sweet; and delightfully crunchy! (I baked the leftover scraps to eat on their own! Heaven!)

Tonight is Game 3 of the World Series and I’ll be taking some to share and cheer on the Chicago Cubs. Go, Cubbies!

    Your cookies look just perfect! (Happy Belated Birthday!). For me, its all about the cookie too,..I’m not a big filling fan.

    These cookies are perfect for sharing (whether we want to or not is another matter). You’ll be popular tonight!
