Santa Hats Made with Homemade Oreo Cookies and an OXO Baking Prize Pack Giveaway



Oreo cookies are probably the one food my husband can not resist. My kids on the other hand are not a fan, they lick the filling out and toss the chocolate cookies. However.... when I make them from scratch they eat far too many of the cookies and the frosting.


I have tried making my own Oreo Cookies from time to time, they are always fab. However they do not taste just like Oreos. I have been on the hunt for a great recipe for a long time. Then last winter my Sister In-law made a recipe from Boston bakery owner, Joanne Chang. I guess she had visited the bakery before and fell in love with these cookies and then later went home to hunt down the recipe.

 After one bite of her homemade Oreos, I fell in love too. They taste spot on but the texture is better and they are made with household ingredients and not some factory made junk. 


After making a batch of Joanne's Oreos I just had to decorate them... all in the holiday spirit right? They are so easy to make and they are for sure a kid pleaser.... I mean just look. My kids couldn't keep their fingers off them as I was shooting the photos!


A new cookie recipe every day in December- a virtual blogger cookie swap!

  15. YES homemade oreos! Like anyone with a pulse, I adore oreos, but hate that they are stuffed with processed ingredients. Here's my solution :) Thanks Carrie!
