I have an addiction with oreos..lol! I love oreos..esp. the mini ones. They are very addictive.
I came across Joanne Chang's homemade oreos recipe in her book FLOUR and had to try it since she said it is sooo good and even her mom approved of it, so i have to try it. Well, i have to say i'm totally impressed that they are really yummy. The cookies are very chocolaty and goes extremely well with the buttercream. At first i was skeptical with the buttercream as it was just butter & icing sugar combo and i usually don't like this icing as it is too sweet. However, paired with the super chocolatey-shells, it is not as sweet and surprising quite good. These cookies are not exactly original oreos but they do come quite close...probably better since it's homemade with no addictives..etc?
