I don't know anyone who doesn't like oreos. They are a classic comfort cookie!  I usually only make these on special occasions or for special people, but today I was just in the mood to whip up a batch.  Like everything else in my life, I decided to make them heart shaped.  Now making your own oreos takes a little bit of work, but believe me they are sooo worth it! Whoever you make these for will definitely appreciate them and you!  Once you've had them you'll wonder how you ever lived without them.
I bake them just long enough that they are slightly crunchy around the edge and a bit soft in the center.  YUM!!!  Be careful who you share them with because after just one bite they will fall in love ;) These cookies should be served with a glass of milk and a warning label!

Creaming butter and sugar
This part can get a little messy...
Hot out of the oven

Of course I had to make the filling PINK

Fill a piping bag to minimize mess


  • Sift 2 & 2/3 cups cocoa powder, 3 cups AP flour, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Cream 2 sticks unsalted butter and 4 cups sugar.
  • Add 4 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • Add dries a little at a time just till combined.
  • Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let rest over night.
  • Roll out dough and use cocoa powder to dust the surface instead of flour.
  • Using cookie cutters of your choice cut cookies out and bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes rotating once halfway through.
  • While cookies are cooling make filling by creaming 2 and 1/2 sticks unsalted butter and 4 cups 10x. Add the 10x slowly to prevent getting covered in it. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste and let this mix till it is super fluffy.
  • Fill and enjoy!

  6. They look so nice. I already saved the recipe to my recipe box. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Hey, we have the same wallpaper on our blogs...I feel an instant connection. ;) Lots of good eats in here, I'll start with these cookies.

  8. 2 AND 2/3 cup cocoa? That's a lot, maybe I won't be making these tonight. Also. Do I let rest on the counter or in the fridge?

  9. Yes it's 2 and 2/3 cup cocoa. Let the butter and sugar go for a long time so it's super soft. It is a lot of dry ingredients so add the dries a little at a time to make life easier! I let it rest on the counter, makes it much easier to roll when it's soft.
