Oreo Cookies

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda

Cream Filling

  • ¼ cup softened butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla


To make dough:

  • In a large bowl, cream together softened butter, sugar, and salt with a hand mixer, until light and fluffy. Add in egg and beat to incorporate.
  • Sift in flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda using either a flour sifter or a fine mesh sieve. (You don’t want any clumps!) Beat well to combine.
  • Turn out dough on a clean surface and shape into a flat square or circle. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 1 hour so it’s firmer to work with.

To prepare cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  • Remove dough from fridge, working with ¼ of the dough at a time, and roll out between sheets of parchment until ¼-inch thick. (Keep remaining dough stored in fridge.)
  • Use a small round cookie cutter or champagne glass to cut into circles. Either peel outer edges of dough scraps away to separate from cut circles, or use a spatula to help lift the cut dough circles. Transfer to prepared baking sheet lined with parchment and sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Reshape scraps into dough ball and continue rolling out sections of remaining dough until all cookies are cut.
  • Bake cookies for 15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool completely before removing from tray.
  • Assemble cookies with cream filling for completed Oreo sandwich cookies. (See below.)
  • Or, pulse cookies in the food processor until crumbled and use in DIY pudding dirt cups!

To prepare cream filling:

  • Combine ingredients in a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy. (Add a splash of water if mixture seems too dry or clumpy.)
  • Assemble homemade Oreos by spreading icing onto one cookie and using another cookie to make a sandwich. Lightly press together and scrape off excess around the edges as needed.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • Yields ~40 homemade Oreo cookies total, or ~20 assembled Oreos.
