If you are a cookie fanatic like we are, this is a fun recipe where you get two cookies in every bite! Smooshed Oreos are fun to use in many recipes, but I haven’t tried adding them to cookie batter yet. After trying it, I know I will be making these gluten free cookies and cream cookies often.

Allergen Information:

This homemade cookie recipe is gluten-free, nut-free, oat-free, and soy-free. If you are dairy-free, use plant-based butter. (FYI, Oreos are both dairy-free and considered vegan.)

Ingredient Notes:

  • Gluten free flour blend – I tested this recipe using Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend, Pillsbury Gluten Free Flour Blend, and King Arthur’s Measure for Measure Gluten Free Blend. That doesn’t mean others will not work; I have not tested other flours, and I can not guarantee the recipe will work if you use other mixes.
  • Xanthan Gum – If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  • Oreos – Use gluten free Oreos brand or one of the copycat Oreo cookie brands listed below.
  • Brown Sugar – Check to be sure brown sugar is gluten free.
  • Butter – I recommend unsalted room temperature or partially melted butter.
  • Baking Powder – Use aluminum-free baking powder. It makes a huge difference in flavor.
  • Salt – You can use either sea salt, as I did, or kosher salt.
  • Eggs – Size large.
  • Vanilla Extract – Use pure vanilla extract if you can. Imitation vanilla will also work in this recipe.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Photos of steps 1 and 2.

Step 1: In a medium bowl, add your gluten free Oreos. You can use either the regular or the double-stuff cookies, depending on how much cream filling you want in these cookies and cream cookies.

It is important not to use too much or too little gluten free flour. I recommend measuring your flour with one of these two methods:

Spoon Method: You can also use a spoon to fill the measuring cup. Use a knife to level along the top to remove the extra flour. Leveling Method: Put the measuring scoop into the flour and fill. Do not pack the flour. Use a knife to scrape along the top to remove the extra flour.

Step 2: Use a pastry cutter to chop the cookies into various sizes. You can also place the cookies in a zipper bag and crush them with a rolling pin. A food processor can also work, but BE CAREFUL NOT to over-mix and turn the cookies into a paste.

Step 3: In a small bowl, add the butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Use a whisk to mix the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Scrape the sides of the bowl to get all of the liquid out of the bowl.

Step 4: Mix the ingredients together into a soft cookie dough but somewhat firm in texture.

📢 Sandi says: Every gluten-free flour blend has a different starch-to-grain ratio. The brand of gluten-free flour you use will affect the moisture of the batter. If your cake batter is too runny, add more flour, and if it is too thick, add more liquids.

Step 5: Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop out uniformly sized dough balls. Place the dough balls onto a prepared cookie sheet. I line my cookie pan with parchment paper.

Step 6: Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies. Remove the cookies from the oven to a wire rack for cooling.

Notes

  1. I tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure and Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend. Both worked well. I have not tested other gluten free flour blends. Some are starchier than others, so you may need a little less flour with some brands.
  2. If your mix doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, add 1 teaspoon.
  3. You can use gluten free Oreos or one of the copycat brands.
  4. These cookies will keep fresh for up to 4 days in the refrigerator or for up to 4 months in a freezer bag in the freezer.

SPECIAL NOTE

Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.

    These cookies are awesome. Thank you for the recipe!
    I have difficulty with the gf flours that I can buy here in Georgia, the country. No supply of flours to make my own. So I am dependant on what is available. BUT, I have found that sometimes you need to just reduce the quantity of gf flour by 1/4 cup and the cookies turn out very moist. The flour I get here makes everything very dry! So this tip works great.

    I tried these with the new GF mint Oreos and they were a huge hit at my super bowl party! Everyone commented on how good they were.

    1. Hi Debby, I am guessing you only read the title and not my post and recipe. The Oreo company now sells gluten free Oreos! Both regular and double stuff. I also discuss many copycat brands like Glutino Oreos etc in the post.
