Homemade Oreos (YESSSS)

August 22, 2016

It is not that Oreos are even my favorite snack cookie (vanilla wafers, hey). I wanted to experiment with making a chocolate sugar cookie and I am really obsessed with this one. Feel free to lose the icing and enjoy them individually.

I completely prefer these to the store bought kind and think even a devoted Oreo consumer would agree. Seriously though, try them.
