When I was a kid I would share my Oreo's with my dog. He got the creamy center and I got the cookie. Now that I am a parent, I used to share my Oreo's with my kids. They got the white soft center and I got the cookie. With this recipe I solved my issue, no creamy white soft center. Just a nice simple, thin wafer all to myself. I still share though.
Recipe: Oreo Wafers
Yields: 30-32 cookies
Prep time: 5 minutes
Bake time: 7-9 minutes
skill level: easy
Preheat oven to 375.
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 large egg, slightly beaten
In a Kitchenaid bowl, combine all ingredients. If you don't have a counter mixer, then use a medium size bowl and mixer, combine all ingredients.
Mix ingredients until well blended. Batter will be similar to thick brownie batter.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Using a scoop, scoop cookies 2 inches a part. These cookies spread and you will need the whole cookie tray. Don't try to make them fit or you will end up with one large cookie.
Bake for 7-9 minutes. They are very thin and will burn if you over bake them.
Remove cookies from oven and let rest on sheet for a few minutes, remove carefully with spatula to a cookie cooling rack.
If you would like to have a filling, let cookies cool completely and then fill.
