Home-made Oreos

Better than the storebought ones, in my humble opinion.

For the cookie:

160g plain flour
8tbsp cocoa powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
250g sugar
140g room-temperature butter
1 large egg

  1. Mix the dry ingredients with an electric mixer, then, on low speed, add butter and then the egg
  2. Continue until dough comes together in a mass.
  3. Take rounded teaspoons of the dough and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet approximately two inches apart. With moistened hands, slightly flatten the dough.
  4. Bake for 9 minutes at 190oC.
  5. Set baking sheets on a rack to cool.

Filling:

115g butter
260g icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk (if required)

  1. Place butter in a mixing bowl, and at low speed, gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla.
  2. Turn the mixer on high and beat for 2 to 3 minutes until filling is light and fluffy.

To assemble the cookies

  1. Spoon teaspoon-sized blobs of cream into the center of one cookie.
  2. Place another cookie, equal in size to the first, on top of the cream.
  3. Lightly press, to work the filling evenly to the outsides of the cookie.
