One Girl Cookies developed a recipe for Oreo-style cookies from scratch when a bride requested them for her wedding. "We are happy to make things people love," says Crofton.
Oreos are America's most popular cookie. Just like the packaged version, in this recipe, the crisp, slightly bitter chocolate wafer offsets the sweetness of the cream filling. You can find more of Crofton and Casale's creations in their book, One Girl Cookies: Recipes for Cakes, Cupcakes, Whoopie Pies, and Cookies from Brooklyn's Beloved Bakery.
