Why These Cookies Are Great:
- They are filled with crushed Oreos in every bite!
- These cookies are slightly crisp yet soft on the insides.
- Your kids will love them, so make a double batch.
- Freeze them, so you have these cookies on hand whenever you crave a cookie!
- 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 just 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.
Recipe Step By Step Directions:
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 of the 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 work as well, 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 together. 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.
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.
