This homemade gluten free oreo cookie recipe is so fun to make. Just choose your filling and have fun! You can also use any shape cookie cutter to make these cookies.
How is it possible I have never made a sandwich cookie?
I have made whoopie pies, and things more cake-like, but never a real filled cookie that resembles an oreo. I buy those chalky gluten free oreo substitutes at Trader Joe’s, but unless I use them smooshed as a crust, I don’t like them.
It was definitely time to change that when I found this green frosting on sale. It seemed a little early for green to be on sale with St. Patrick’s Day coming, but I thought it would look pretty in these gluten free chocolate cookies.
My kids were pretty excited about this gluten free cookie recipe too. These cookies are not crispy like an oreo, they are a bit softer, more like a sugar cookie. Both kids said they were delicious, and next time make them with Nutella inside :-).

Sorry, it is hard not to taste when I am taking pictures :-).
These cookies are really easy to make. You will find that my cookie recipe resembles any gluten free sugar cookie recipe. Once I have the batter all mixed, I rolled it out really thin.
Use a small cookie cutter to cut out the cookies. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have used this cutter with the scalloped edges. It was a little harder to peel the shapes out once cut. You can use any shape cutter you like. Just make sure your dough is cold.
