Homemade Oreos

Last sunday was my brother in law's birthday. I told him I'd make dinner and a cake, well he's now getting homemade oreos! These were not hard or time consuming, honestly the longest part was filling them. They taste delicious too!

Homemade Oreos- adapted from What Megan's Making
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 scant cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 stick butter, cut into pieces
1 egg

Filling:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375. In a large mixing bowl mix together soda, powder, cocoa, flour, and sugar, until well combined. Add in butter a piece at a time and then egg. Mix until a stiff dough forms. Scoop using a mini ice cream/cookie scoop 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Cook for 9 mins, rotating half way through. Cool before filling.

Cream together butter and shortening, slowly add in sugar and vanilla. Mix on med-high until light and fluffy. Place filling between 2 cookies and enjoy!
