You know those store-bought chocolate and cream filled cookies from your childhood? Who doesn’t love Oreo© cookies? Introduced in 1912, they are the best-selling cookie in the entire United States! When you feel like snacking on a chocolate sandwich cookie, why not make your own? No one can resist this copycat recipe for Oreo© cookies! This cookie recipe will rock your world!

These homemade chocolate and cream filled cookies will surprise your friends, win over your enemies, and delight the kid in everyone. Okay, maybe not exactly–but the softness of these cookies is amazing. They are a cookie that you can really sink your teeth into. Combined with an easy to prepare frosting, it is a recipe that will go into your “keepers” file. Why not make it easy to find again later and go ahead and pin it on Pinterest now to save the hassle of hunting for it later?
It’s a rather rich little cookie so less is certainly more in this case (and way cuter). I divided the dough in half by hand each time I used the 2 teaspoon-sized cookie dough scoop to try to lessen the size. That worked rather well even though they weren’t always uniform. A small scoop size would be ideal. These are thin so they can go from done to super burned rather quickly. No, I am absolutely not speaking from experience. I didn’t burn six cookies on accident. Not at all.
Presentation was not especially important to me, given that there was going to be a large percentage of children present, so I ignored the whole “pipe the filling onto a cookie” and opted to slap it on with a spoon. I’m all fancy like that. But really, when you make this for family or close friends, does it really matter? I think not, at least, not when these scratch-made Oreo© cookies were gobbled up so quickly that no one got a really good look at them! This fantastic recipe comes from What Megan’s Making who found it on Tasty Kitchen. Like them, follow them, share them. It’s nice to receive positive comments!
