Easy homemade oreos recipe with creamy filling

I’m not sure if I should actually call these homemade Oreos, because I think they’re so much better! They’re made-from-scratch with staple ingredients & have just the right crunch. They’re similar to the original in that it’s velvety cream sandwiched between two chocolate cookies & you can’t stop at just one.

There are a couple of tips to make sandwich cookies without a lot of effort:

  • Roll out dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie to minimize cleanup. 
  • Cut cookies directly on the cookie sheet to eliminate the need to transfer cookies. After you cut out the dough, just peel away the excess & bake! 
  • Spread the cream frosting directly on the cookies or pipe it on by cutting the tip off of a sandwich bag, filling it with icing & squeezing it directly onto the cookie.
