If you’re a fan of the traditional Oreo cookies, you’re definitely going to love these by Leanna Thompson. While not dairy-free, the ingredients can easily be substituted to suit both dairy-free and non individual alike. They’re sweet, crispy, and totally worth every bite.

HOW-TO

  1. Combine the dry ingredients for the cookies in a large bowl.
  2. Add oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  3. Shape dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. To make the filling, beat the softened butter until smooth. Add sugar and vanilla and beat until combined. 
  6. Refrigerate the filling while you form and bake the cookies. 
  7. Roll the dough out to 1/4”/0.9 cm thick. Cut the cookies with a 2”/6 cm round cookie cutter, or using the mouth of a small mouthed mason jar.
  8. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 14 minutes, or until firm but not crispy.
  9. Let cookies cool completely. Spread filling on one side of a cookie and top with second cookie. Repeat to make the remaining cookie sandwiches.
