Homemade Oreos

I use to be a huge fan of Oreo cookies. I have to confess that during my first visit to the USA I use to eat a pack of Oreos almost everyday. The original ones, the golden ones, the minis (my favourites!), the "double stuff", the peanut butter ones... etc.  Not anymore. I find them bland. It really juste taste like sugar, nothing else. And of course they have an extensive scary list of ingredients.
This recipe is great. You'll find the same texture and appearance than the "real" oreo cookies but they taste infinitely better and are exempt of weird chemicals.

For the cookies:
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup dutch cocoa
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate
- 1/4 teaspoon raising powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 sticks (150g) butter
- 1 egg


For the filling:
- 1/2 stick (60g) butter
- 1/4 cup raw coconut oil
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tbs vanilla extract


For the cookies : Preheat the oven at 375F (190C). Mix the butter and the sugar together until creamy. Add the egg, flour and cocoa. Add the bicarbonate, the raising powder and the salt. Make tiny balls of dough (not bigger than a cherry tomatoe). Place them on a cooking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Let them cool.

While the cookies are cooling prepare the filling. Mix the butter, the coconut oil, sugar and vanilla extract together.

Take one cookie. Place a litlle bit of the filling in the middle. Cover with another cookie.

Let the cookies set in the refrigerator.
