Homemade Oreos

I really enjoyed this idea of creating typical snacks from scratch at home. On the page listing the oreo recipe, there is also a link to a gluten free version. That is the recipe I chose to make. The cookie part of the recipe tasted really good, but didn't replicate an oreo very well. Adding a little more GF flour and cocoa powder might help that. I will, however, definitely make them again. Frequently using GF flours, especially rice flour, leaves baked products with a slightly gritty feeling in your mouth. There is very little of that in this recipe; perhaps the icing the middle helps cover that texture. Rachel loved them, as did the rest of us. We definitely recommend giving them a try.

  1. Great that you made them gluten free! I'm sure Rachel really appreciates it. I have only made one item so far with rice flour and it was a cake. I'll have to try something new soon though. It seems more and more people are becoming conscious of gluten, even if they don't have the allergy. Thanks for sharing and for your ideas on the next batch!
