Homemade Oreos

2013 April 16

The Omnivore’s addiction to Oreos pretty much pays for our membership to Costco. Whether Oreos are on sale or not, whether I like it or not, he must have Oreos to eat after lunch or dinner or whenever. I try to supplement with other sweets – bundt cake, chocolate chip cookies, anything really. Oreos, however, remain what he needs.


I had mentioned in the past making that I wanted to make homemade Oreos but the Omnivore was convinced they wouldn’t be a good enough replacement and based on the reviews I’d read, I was convinced that while delicious, they were a softer-cookied-cousin to the classic.


Finally, though, my curiosity got the best of me.  Soft or crispy, creamy or buttery, I knew they’d be delicious nonetheless.  Plus – we had a road trip ahead of us and during road trips one gets desperate for snacking.

Turns out making them thin enough and baking them for exactly 9 minutes led to a crispy chocolate wafer cookie.  I flavored half of the cookies mint (has favorite) and have vanilla.  They were really good and definitely better than the shelf stable Oreo!
