Oreos!

Admit it. Who doesn't love oreos? They're amazing! The person who cam up with the idea of getting two delicious chocolate biscuits and sticking them together with icing to make one biscuit is a genius. A god. It's probably one of the best inventions since...a while. Either way, they're good, so when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make oreos out of them. I didn't use the icing recipe that she gave though, I used a slightly different one, but I think that it worked really well, so that's the one I'm going to give you all. Enjoy!


Oreos
Bare Necessities
For The Cookies
1 1/2cups/150g Flour
2/3cups/66g Cocoa Powder
1 1/4cups/155g Icing Sugar
1 Egg
1tsp Vanilla Essence
3/4cups/170g Butter


For The Filling
2cups Icing Sugar
1/2cup Butter
2tsp Vanilla Essence
1tbsp Milk


1. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Beat in the egg and vanilla essence until it's fully combined.
3. Gently fold in the flour, cocoa powder and icing sugar until it is all mixed in.
4. Gather your dough together in a ball, wrap it in cling film and put it in the fridge for about 1 hour.
5. Preheat the oven to 350F/175C.
6. On a lightly dusted surface, roll out the dough to about 1 or 2 cm thick and cut out smallish circles with a cutter and place it on a greased baking tray.
7. Pop in the oven for about 10 minutes.
8. When they're cooked, put them on a cooling rack to cool.
9. Blend the remaining icing sugar, butter, vanilla essence and milk together until light and very fluffy.
10. Put the icing in the fridge for a bit to chill it.
11. Once both the icing and cookies are cool, take one cookie, spread some icing on it, place another cookie on top, push them together slightly and put it on a plate.
12. Repeat this until you have used up all your cookies and put your oreos in the fridge to chill.
13. Enjoy!
