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?
