It often comes as a surprise to people when I tell them that Oreo cookies are vegan. Some of my meat-eating friends find this disgusting, however, I tend to think its wonderful news. Especially when I can replicate the popular oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies.
1/2 cup vegan butter, Earth Balance
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg replacer egg
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
1 package oreo cookies
Cream together the butter and sugars. Add the egg replacer eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and mix together. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Take one oreo cookie and pack the cookie dough in a layer around the entire cookie. Repeat until all oreos or cookie dough is gone. Note: the cookies spread a lot, so leave room on the baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-13 minutes. These cookies look a bit flat, but are quite delicious.
