the cookies just keep on comin'

i'm on a roll here, folks.  i can't seem to stop making cookies!  i find that i really love the process of it more than actually eating the products.  of course, i have to try one here and there to make sure they don't taste like ass, but for the most part i get a big kick out of making vs. eating.  how strange, especially for me.

anyway, i wanted to bring something fun to my junior league meeting (along with another fun thing i need to share with you), so i turned to homemade oreos.  i could follow through with the pink & brown theme and still have something super delicious to share.

the food processor is sure turning out to be a godsend.  i no longer have to ignore recipes that call for one!


the dough was pretty crumbly when it was done, but i expected that.  i've made homemade oreos before, but with a different recipe.


as suggested in this recipe, i decided to use cookie cutters to make my oreos extra fun.



they baked up nicely, filling the house with a fabulous brownie-like aroma, although they puffed up a bit and lost their shape a little.  oh, well.


while they cooled on the rack, i whipped up the creamy filling.  it didn't come together as nicely as i wanted, so i decided to improvise and toss in a couple of spoonfuls of marshmallow creme.  and then it was perfect.


i went the easy way and stuffed it all into a ziploc bag and cut the corner off to do the filling.


MIL and the bean were happy to be my taste-testers.  and when i got their stamp of approval, i continued filling the cookies till they were all done.




pretty snazzy, eh?
