Homemade Oreo Cookies

*2 and 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
*1 cup Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder
*2 teaspoons Baking Soda
*1/4 teaspoons Salt
*1 cup Butter, room temperature
*1 and 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
*1/2 cup light Brown Sugar
*2 Eggs, room temperature
*2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

In a stand mixer cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Then add eggs and vanilla and mix just until combined.

Whisk together or Sift: Flour, chocolate powder, soda, salt and slowly add to the above creamed mixture until it forms a soft dough ball, cover cookie dough ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Remove from fridge and using a cookie scoop (size of your choice or about 1 tablespoon per dough ball ) scoop cookie dough out onto Silpat covered 1/2 baking sheet, 12 cookie balls per sheet, pressing each dough ball slightly flat. Keep cookie dough cold in the fridge while each batch bakes. (For best results use a cool baking sheet for each batch of cookies.)

In a pre-heated oven bake 350* F. for 6-8 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing cookies to cooling rack. (Careful not to over bake)

Makes about 25 sandwich cookies (1 tablespoon dough ball per cookie)

    1. Thanks Jacque, I’m glad you like them. I think the same about the dark chocolate it makes a big difference along with the cream cheese frosting. Also they taste great cold too!
