These cookies are amazing! Even if you don't like oreos you will probably like this cookie. The chocolate cookies are soft and chewy and the frosting is creamy and light. Perfect with a cold glass of milk. This could be a dangerous recipe to have on hand!

Adapted from Retro Desserts, Wayne Brachman
Makes 20 large cookies

Chocolate Cookie:
1 1/4 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 to 1 1/2 cups sugar [see recipe note]
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) room-temperature, unsalted butter
1 large egg

1/2 cup (1 stick) room-temperature, unsalted butter
2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Bake the cookies:
Using a standing electric mixer on low speed, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
Add the butter, and then egg. The batter will look dry but continue to mix for about 3 minutes until dough forms.

Now you can roll and cutout chilled dough or simply use a small cookie scoop (about 1 Tablespoon) and drop dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheet about two inches apart.

Use a flat bottom glass to press the balls of dough into a nice rounded circle shape...not too flat though.

Bake for 10 minutes. When baked remove from baking pan to cooling rack.

Make the filling:
Beat butter with electric mixer on high speed until thoroughly combined about 2 minutes. Decrease speed to low and slowly add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Once blended, increase the speed to high and beat for 2 to 3 minutes until light and fluffy.

Assemble the cookies:
Place frosting on the smooth side of one cookie and sandwich together with another cookie on top. Yummy.

You are right about the danger involved... I have to stop reading, before I go on bookmarking too much stuff!

All of your baked goods look deliscious... what would you suggest i substitute instead of eggs.... i hope it doesnt change the recipe too much.

Really nice though, very impressive!

Fortunas- I have never tried using an egg sub. I know that eggs are used as a binding agent and add moisture in cookies. I would go with a store bought egg substitute and if you do let me know how it turns out. :)

I made these a while back, and they were fantastic! I've tried other homemade Oreo recipes in the past, but this one is my favorite. I like that the cookies are soft and not too sweet. The only thing I did differently: I used all butter instead of half butter/half shortening in the frosting. Thank you for this recipe! I think I'm going to make them again for a party this weekend.
