Oreos. My kids love oreos but I won't buy them. Have you ever looked at the ingredients list on a package of oreos? No thanks. I flipped through a few books and then did a little internet search. I found a chocolate wafer cookie on the Smitten Kitten website. She's a fellow blogger and happens to do it really well, way better than me. I used her recipe (here) for the cookie base, but then used my buttercream for the centers.
These are pretty good. Still not what I am looking for. I want something a little less crispy and something a little cakier? I may have to create my very own take on the perfect oreo.
In a pinch, these are good. I know they will go over well for both the Purim basket as well as their bake sale.
