Homemade Oreos Recipe

Homemade Oreos Recipe

Who knew homemade Oreos could taste just as great as the regular ones? Well, when I made these fresh homemade Oreo cookies, I just had to share them. There are a lot of Oreo recipes, but this one is not only delicious, it’s also easy to make at home. The ingredients are similar to making chocolate chip cookies, just minus the mini chocolate chips. So, if you’re familiar with that recipe, then you can surely make these wonderful homemade Oreos on your own.

Just like the original Oreos, this homemade Oreo cookie recipe has that iconic Oreo cream filling everyone loves. I only used butter, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and vegetable shortening. After blending all of these ingredients together, I got a smooth and creamy vanilla filling that’s absolutely delightful. I recommend making more homemade Oreo filling when you want a double and extra creamy cookie filling.

I made the filling first since it was easier, but feel free to begin with the actual Oreo cookies first. When making the Oreo cookie batter, make sure to chill for at least 30 minutes before shaping it. It’s an important step when you want to make these homemade Oreos last long while baking. Chilling it would help hold its shape better when cut into small circles.

Similar to the Oreo filling, the sandwich cookies were also a delight to make. I enjoyed making the Oreo cookies and turning them into a cookie sandwich with the cream filling. They turned out great and similar to their original counterpart, and I had fun munching on them. These tasty and sweet homemade cookies are perfect when served alongside a warm glass of milk.
