I grew up loving Oreo Cookies! I was not a fan of the cream, but the cookies were very tasty. I actually had a lot of fun making these cookies, especially using the heart-shaped cookie cutters! Hopefully, I will get to use more cookie cutters throughout the year!
This cookie was chewier than an Oreo cookie. However, one way to make it less chewy is to make the cookies thinner and bake them for 16 minutes.
Tips on How to Make Homemade Oreo Cookies:
- Before mixing the dry ingredients like all-purpose flour, baking soda, and brown sugar, sift them individually. This easy but very important step would make your cookies nice and evenly textured. It wouldn’t be fun biting into a lump of flour in between 🙂
- You can use a round cookie cutter in cutting the Oreo Cookies if you don’t have the heart-shaped ones.
- Wrap these cookies and tie them with a beautifully-colored ribbon to give as a holiday or Valentine’s day present. I am sure the receiver will love it!
