Home­made Oreo Cookie Recipe

homemade oreo cookies

If you plan to host a baby shower or a kids birthday party, you will want to bookmark this recipe. The homemade Oreos are prettier that the store-bought version and a bit healthier since you can control what you put in. My only concern with this recipe is that the filling contains veg­etable short­en­ing. I can’t tell you how to adapt the recipe since I am not a baker. But if you know how, please share how to adapt the recipe with butter or oil in a comment.

This homemade Oreo recipe is really easy to make. It doesn’t require any special skills. I bet that it would be a hit at your next cookie bake sale. Take a look at the recipe from Emma of The Marion House Book and Smitten Kitchen‘s adaptation of the recipe  from the cookbook Retro Desserts by Wayne Brachman.

  1. You can replace the shortening by butter. I was thinking of doing that and I got a confirmation from another website: http://wholesomemommy.com/homemade-oreos/

  2. You can replace the shortening or butter with cream cheese. Very tastey!
