but don’t you worry, I’ll turn them into something delicious, trust me.
I was in the mood for baking today, (when am I not) and made some cookies. I’ve always wanted to make homemade Oreos but never got to. So I’ve found some recipe and decided to give Baking Bites’ Homemade Oreo Cookies a try.
2 C all-purpose flour
½ C unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ C cornstarch
½ tsp salt
1 C + 2 Tbsp sugar (I used 1 C)
½ C vegetable shortening or butter, I used ½ C (one stick) of butter
1/3 C water
½ tsp vanilla extract
(I also added 1 tsp espresso powder)
1. In a bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch and salt, set aside
* Whenever you’re making cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pancake, or basically everything other than yeast bread, you don’t want to over mix the dough/batter, especially after you add in the flour. If you over work flour, the dough/batter
becomes tough and doughy and no one likes a tough cookie.
* You don’t want the cookies to be thicker than ¼”, they won’t be crispy.
* I always add in a little espresso powder or ground cinnamon whenever I make something chocolatey, I really believe it brings out the chocolate flavor more.
If you want to make some Oreos you can get the filling recipe from here.
I made those cookies for another dessert I’m making later; I’ll keep it a secret for now. It’s a surprise, hehe.
