Cocoa & Cream Cookies: The Artisan Oreo
From Carrie Morey's Hot Little Suppers cookbook
5 stars from Kimberly:
- "These are life-changing cookies! My Aunt from SC sent me (in CA) a couple of boxes to make me feel better during these brutal quarantine times and they rocked my world!! Literally, the best cookies I have ever tasted!! Not joking!"
Cocoa & Cream Cookies - affectionately known by the Morey family as Morey-O's - is a creation made by Callie (Carrie's mom). This preservative-free, hand-rolled cookie dough bakes up a dense dark chocolate cookie that sandwiches our fluffy sweet cream center... making our version of the famous Oreo cookies.
Carrie grew up eating these decadent Cocoa & Cream Cookies and very vividly remembers them around the holidays with Callie's toasted pecan mousse and strawberries. They were always a big hit and Carrie decided they were too delicious to not share with the rest of the world.
These frozen cookies produce a dessert you'll try to keep stocked for entertaining but enjoy every day! Just thaw to enjoy and leave on your counter for up to four days (if they even last that long)!
They are perfect for a garden luncheon, a beach blanket picnic, or a late-night sneaky snack on their own or added to these recipes:
Ice Box Cake - Using Callie's Hot Little Biscuit's Cocoa & Cream Cookies with handmade whipped cream and top it with fruit, more Cocoa & Cream Cookies, and chocolate shredding.
Derby Pie - With Cocoa & Cream Cookies to create a rich, chocolatey pie crust.
Cocoa & Cream Cookie Waffles -With shortcake biscuit mix and cocoa & cream cookies to get the sweetest dessert or breakfast.
