Ory's Oreos

Oh yes, you thought it couldn't get any better than Marshmallow Malteser Cookies? You thought wrong!

These are amazing, much tastier than the real deal! It's always a good sign when the dough tastes amazing raw!

This is super fast to make, and so easy to do! It only takes the bowl in your mixer so there's less washing up to do as well! 

I used a shot glass as a cookie cutter (classy!!) But be warned the yield here is four dozen cookies plus! So if you're not feeling Oreos that much, keep some cookies back and I'll show you what to do with them tomorrow! :)

Let me know what you think of these bad boys! Very messy bad boys it has to be said!

You will need:
1 cup Butter (softened)
1 cup Icing Sugar
1 cup Cocoa Powder
11/2 cup Plain Flour
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 cup Icing Sugar (sieved)
Knob Margarine
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp Boiling Water

  1. Beat butter until fluffy.
  2. Add icing sugar and mix until combined.
  3. Add vanilla and cocoa powder, mix until combined.
  4. Sieve in the flour and mix until combined yet crumbly in texture.
  5. Cover with cling film and chill for 20 minutes in the fridge.
  6. Line three baking trays with baking parchment.
  7. Preheat the oven to 175degrees Celcius.
  8. Lightly flour a worktop and rolling pin.
  9. Knead the dough twice to loosen up.
  10. Roll out to 1/8inch thick.
  11. Cut out with cookie cutter/shot glass.
  12. Bake in oven for ten minutes (centre will have risen but the edge will be baked, do not judge on colour because these bake the same colour as they are when raw!)
  13. Allow to cool while you mix all buttercream ingredients together with a hand mixer.
  14. Sandwich together.
  15. Enjoy!

If you run out of buttercream, save the cookies! I'll be back tomorrow with another use for them! ;) 

I love this meme! #YOLO
Stay sweet! x


  1. They DO look better than the packaged kind! Thx for the recipe.

  2. No worries! :) They were a little messy looking, but you could definitely clean them up by running a knife around the edge! Thanks for stopping by! :)
