So remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned bringing a boy back home to Wisconsin to meet my family? Well yeah, that happened and it went well! Everyone loved Andy and my Dad even told some of my Arab relatives that we were engaged. (We are not engaged.) Anyway- now it’s time for me to return the favor and meet Andy’s family in North Carolina. He has 8 nieces and nephews which I’m excited about since I don’t have any (yet.)
I knew I couldn’t come empty handed so I tried to think of an easily transportable treat that the kids would love. I have to score brownie points after all! :) I think these are the perfect thing and I can’t wait for everyone to try them. They taste very much like an Oreo just with a better homemade touch. The cookie is crispy with a slightly chewy center and the filling is creamy and sweet just like Oreos. For some reason, my filling felt a little too thick though so I may add a teaspoon or less of milk next time to make it easier to pipe. I must say though that when I pull the top off the “Oreo” to lick the filling out of the middle- it tastes just like I remember. Enjoy!
