I recently bought some Newman's Own organic oreos as I am using them for an upcoming recipe. It's been so long, I kinda forgot how good Oreos are as I don't usually buy them. And then I think about making them sometimes, but to make them absolutely perfectly it requires cutting out cookies. And if you know me at all, then you know there is nothing I hate more than cutting out cookies! It is not for me, and I am okay with saying it.

I was thinking about how to make homemade Oreos easier to make, without cutting them out. And I had the idea to make slice and bake Oreo cookies. Because when you make slice and bake cookies, they can get that perfectly round shape that is very similar to cutting out cookies, but without all the headache. So, I created this recipe for Slice and Bake Oreos!

Then I made a traditional cream filling with butter, powdered sugar, and heavy whipping cream. And I whipped it up, and filled these bad boys with lots of it. These are organic Oreos you can make at home and are so easy to make when you use my slice and bake method! I hope you like this style of homemade Oreos as much as I do!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

To make the dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, cane sugar, and vanilla extract and mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of butter.

Add the egg, flour, and cocoa and mix on low until combined.

Have a large piece of plastic wrap ready. Roll the dough into a log that is about 10-inches long, and place on the plastic wrap and wrap up tightly. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 3

Slice the log into cookies that are fairly thin, about 1/8-inch thick. Think about if you're slicing a piece of salami, that's how I like to measure this one. Place on the prepared baking sheets spacing 1-inch apart.

Step 4

Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until the cookies look set and dry around the edges. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

Step 5

To make the filling: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, powdered sugar, and heavy whipping cream. Mix on low until combined, then speed mixer up to high for 1 to 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Transfer to a piping bag with no tip.

Step 6

Turn over every other cookie so they are paired, and pipe a dollop of filling onto each turned over cookie. Sandwich the cookies together.

Baker's Tips

  • Make sure to use softened butter for the cookies and filling. I like to leave butter out on the counter to soften naturally, and during this cooler time of year, that can even take overnight. If you forget to leave butter out or need to microwave it, only microwave it for 10 seconds per 1/2 cup.
  • I prefer to use Dutch cocoa powder as it is sweeter than natural cocoa. In this recipe, you can also use a natural cocoa in place of Dutch cocoa if you prefer.
  • Make sure to use a sharp knife when slicing the cookies, I prefer to use a chef's knife.
  • Make sure to let cookies cool completely before filling them. This prevents the filling from melting and you want to have that sweet cream filling stay in tact.
  • Store in a cool dry place so these cookies keep their texture. I recommend using a cookie jar or a tin.

Can I freeze the dough?

Yes, you can freeze the dough log. To thaw it, just place it in the fridge for 24 hours before slicing it up.
