Homemade Oreos

We’re big fans of the Oreo cookie in this house. I personally love the chocolate ones while my daughter and husband prefer the vanilla ones. (but will eat any available flavor!)  They’re even called “Grandpa cookies” at my parent’s house and Sienna requests a “Grandpa cookie” when we’re there for Sunday dinner each week. I think it’s the cutest.

Just like the real Oreos, these cookies are fun to twist apart so you can lick the filling. As I prefer to do. My daughter just takes tiny bites of the entire cookie. I’m pretty sure my husband just throws the whole cookie in his mouth…

I’m pretty pleased with how close these resemble the taste of the real thing. You’re gonna love them!
