Homemade oreos for santa

This week I made some homemade oreos for a friend using this recipe. I’ve made them once before and they were a big hit. I decided to use a star, heart, and square cookie cutters and make the icing half red and half green for a christmas-ey touch. They taste AWESOME (like everything that is bad for you;) 2012-12-19_16-06-49_228most of the ingredients…

I really love these cookies, they use dutch processed cocoa powder and they have a really good, strong cocoa flavor. They are kind of time consuming to make because you have to keep putting them back into the refrigerator, but so worth it! Also, i think I need to invest in a smaller cookie cutter because they came out as jumbo sized cookies!
