Ingredients
Makes about 30 sandwich cookies

Chocolate Cookies:
1 1/4th cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons room-temperature, unsalted butter
1 large egg

Vanilla-Cream Filling:
1/4 cup room-temperature, unsalted butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Method
Set two racks in the middle of the oven. Preheat to 190ºC/375ºF.

In a food processor, or bowl of an electric mixer, thoroughly mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and powder, salt, and sugar. While pulsing, or on low speed, add the butter, and then the egg. Continue processing or mixing until dough comes together in a mass.

Take rounded teaspoons of batter and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet approximately 5cm (2 inches) apart. With moistened hands, slightly flatten the dough. Bake for about 10 mins), rotating once for even baking. Set baking sheets on a rack to cool.

To make the cream, place butter and shortening in a mixing bowl, and at low speed, gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla. Turn the mixer on high and beat for 2-3 minutes until filling is light and fluffy.

To assemble the cookies, in a pastry bag with a 1/2 inch round tip, pipe teaspoon-size blobs of cream into the center of one cookie. Place another cookie, equal in size to the first, on top of the cream. Lightly press, to work the filling evenly to the outsides of the cookie. Continue process until all the cookies have been sandwiched with cream.

  4. Looks delicious and absolutely chocolatey (hmm if there is every such a word as this?)

  5. This recipe is a life saver. Since I've eaten Orea Cookies the first time in the Netherlands, I'm searching for those cookies here in Germany too. A few times I got lucky and found a package here and there, but they don't stay long and are never enough. Now I can finally make my own, without ever worrying when I find the next Cookies. Big thanks from the (mostly) Oreo less part of the World.
