A few things for this post…one, I had wanted to make these cookies but it seemed silly since I’ve already made Oreos before. But, it’s less silly when your husband loves Oreos. And all things involving Oreos. I’ve been to the Flour Bakeries (several times) but did not try this cookie there because, again, it seemed silly when I could eat so many other special treats there. I wish my stomach had been bigger…but the baby Fudgelet had taken up residence there. Soooo, then let’s move forward to the end of September when I made these cookies.
I have made homemade Oreos before, but the filling is always so-so for me. It’s hard to match the regular filling, so I decided to do something different. I did half with vanilla buttercream and half with cookie butter buttercream. After making the Cookie Butter Cups, I felt ready to make these cookies. They have the perfect amount of salt to go with the sweet filling. We loved the cookies, and K felt really special to have cookies with his initial on them. You can feel free to have fun with the shapes since you are basically making chocolate shortbread cookies, so they will hold their shape pretty well. The K’s were less clear after they were baked, but if you looked carefully you could see them.
