Eggless Oreo Cookies

My blog views crossed 10000. yayayyyyy!!!!!! Celebrating with a sweet!!! Oreo Cookies, ah so many kids favorite.. I bet there are many adults also in that list.. This is one such cookie which has lot of products from it, like I have seen an Oreo Cookie Ice-cream, Oreo Cookie Cheesecake, Oreo Cookie stuffed chocolate etc.. Oreo Cookies is so famous and to do them at home is not easy as the first thing that people relate to is the fabulous taste. This recipe however made that challenge much easier and yes the taste was awesome and it was so heavenly to eat and the fresh chocolate smell all over the house.. It was yummmm!!! I am so happy to be part of Baking Partners group and is very interesting to try these varieties!!. I added a few drops of color to the filling as my daughter loves pink cream in her cream biscuit!!. Original recipe had eggs and I have used flax seed powder to make a substitute.

Method
Mix together flax seed powder and warm water and set aside for 5 minutes. Now whisk vigorously until it becomes gooey. Set aside.
In a mixer, cream butter and both sugars together
Once creamy, add salt, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla until combined
Add the flax seed mixture and mix until combined
Sieve together flour and cocoa and add it to the wet ingredients all in once and mix until most of the dry is hydrated
Now turn on the mixer and mix until uniform
Knead to form a smooth ball. At this stage you could either proceed or refrigerate up to a week
If refrigerating, bring it back to room temperature before rolling
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C
Line the cookie sheet with Parchment paper and set aside
IMG_4760Sift cocoa powder on counter and roll the dough with hand initially and then finish it off with a rolling pin to 1/8th inch thickness. Do not start with the rolling pin as it might stick a lot. Do some with hand and finish it with rolling pin
Using a 2" round cookie cutter, cut the cookies and transfer to the cookie sheet with the help of a metal spatula
Knead the remaining dough and work it all the way until most of the dough is used up.
You need not leave much gap between the cookies as they will not spread
Take a small 1 inch size dough and add 1/2 tea spoon warm water to it and mix vigorously until it becomes like a frosting
Take a toothpick and dip inside the frosting and design on top of the cookies. I wrote letters to form the name of my blog and also my daughter's name. My daughter was so excited to arrange the letters to get her name!!!. It was fun

Bake the cookie in the preheated oven for 15 - 18 minutes until they are firm to touch. Mine took about 17 minutes. It is a good practice to rotate the pan half way through (say about at 8 minutes) to ensure even cooking
Remove from oven and move the cookies with the parchment to a cooling rack and allow it to cool completely
For the filling - add all the ingredients to a mixer and beat until combined and comes to a frosting consistency. You may add milk to bring to the desired consistency.

Once the cookies are cooled completely, flip half the cookies upside down and add about a tea spoon of the frosting and close it with the remaining half of the cookies
Apply even pressure to ensure that the frosting is evenly spread and take care not to squeeze them out
Refrigerate for at least a few hours to give time for the frosting to set and serve

  23. I have made homemade oreos before and they are so delicious. I use a recipe by Thomas Keller. I think his version of the chocolate sable used in the sandwich cookie tastes just like oreos.
