I mentioned yesterday I wanted to try this cookie recipe for homemade Oreos. I gathered my ingredients and what could possibly be
The recipe calls for the dough to be mixed in a food processor. Well. It was super easy and I think I’ll try other cookie doughs this way.
I had noted some comments on Ravelry and on the blog where the recipe originated and reduced the amount of sugar for the chocolate wafers to 3/4 cup instead of 1 to 1.5 cup. The wafers were dark, dense and chocolatey and not overly sweet. The recipe yield was 25 to 30 sandwich cookies, but I only got 18 and a half. So I had to eat that odd one out. Anyway, I think I used a little more for each ball of dough than the original recipe because mine also were a bit thicker than in the photos on the recipe page. Or I should have flattened them more before baking.
I baked them exactly nine minutes, no more, as recommended on the discussion board. I mixed up the filling and by then the cookies were completely cool and easy to handle. I filled them with a pastry bag and sandwiched them together.
And here’s my -other- new best friend:
I’ve been looking everywhere (in stores and online) for this. I picked one up at a liquidation store some weeks ago and the first time I used it, it shorted out and burnt all the wiring. $9.99 down the drain. The other day I was in Sears and went through the kitchen section and they had these Kenmore ones for $19.99 with a two year warranty, so I brought it home. It’s perfect for doing a couple of baked potatoes for us on steak night, and yesterday I tried making oatmeal in it and it turned out really good.
