real “oreo” cookies

Monday, 16 August 2010

a good friend of mine from my early days at the Conservancy used to take people around on their first day with a plate of brownies, which (i have to admit) puts people in a pretty great state of mind to meet a new colleague.

i decided this weekend to resurrect the tradition — after tripping on a real “oreo” cookie recipe on

great cookies. the only thing i’d change is that the two outer cookies (at 1/4 inch each) were waaaay too thick. when i make these again, i’m rolling out the dough to less than half that, so people can actually bite through without squirting out all the cream-filling.

oh, and turns out our new employee has an problem with gluten, so it was really more of a present for everyone else.
