“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!
