Bring on the Pumpkin .. Homemade Pumpkin Oreos


Usually I will pin or save a recipe and it will take me a while to make it.  But when I saw on blog hop Homemade Pumpkin Oreo recipe on The Silly Girl's Life, I had to make them! Now I'm all about the quick and easy so when I made the oreo part I made my really LARGE instead of small little ones.  I was having a pitty me week and even ate TWO of them, yup they had to be promptly taken to the neighbor's house so I would not eat any more!


Ingredients Oreo Cookie
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1/2 Cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 Cup vegetable shortening
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 Cup hot water
1/2 Cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl, mix to combine and set aside. Cream together the 1/2 Cup shortening with the granulated sugar with a hand mixer (or stand mixer) on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add in the eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and beat for an additional minute until combined. On low speed, mix in 1/3 the flour mixture and combine thoroughly. Add in the milk and combine. Add in another 1/3 of the flour, mix to combine. Add in the hot water, mix to combine. Finally, add in the remaining flour and thoroughly mix. Use a spatula to scrap down the sides of the bowl between additions.

Place tablespoon sized dollops on to parchment or silicone lined baking sheets. Bake for 8-9 minutes until cookies look set. Place baking sheet on wire rack for 5 minutes to cool. Place cookies directly on wire rack to cool completely.

ALEXIS NOTE: I pipped mine onto a cookie sheet.
Next to make the frosting.
Ingredients
4 oz cream cheese, softened
4 Tbls butter, unsalted, softened
1/4 Cup puree pure pumpkin
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt

While the cookies are cooling, make the filling. Cream together the cream cheese and butter until combined. Add in the remaining ingredients and whip on medium speed for 3 minutes until fluffy. Spread filling evenly on the cookies or use a piping bag. Top with another cookie.

ALEXIS NOTES: I also pipped on the frosting in between the cookies.


To Assemble you take 1 oreo cookie add frosting and top with another cookie.  Make sure your two cookies are about the same size.


 And you place them on a tray and take them out of the house quickly so you don't eat them all .. lol


Super easy recipe and they came out so yummy!!  Enjoy!
