Halloween Oreos

Prep Time:
Total Time:

  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 cup dark cocoa powder (or use regular cocoa powder)
  • 2.5 cup flour (used Cara's All-Purpose Blend)

  • 2 Tbsp nondairy milk
  • 6 Tbsp non-hydrogenated shortening
  • 6 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp molasses

Filling

  • 1.25 cup powdered sugar
  • few drops of gluten-free vegan orange food coloring
  • 3 Tbsp non-hydrogenated shortening
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the wet ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until a nice dough forms. It might be a little crumbly; simply place the dough on a piece of parchment paper and gently knead until a smooth ball if formed.
  4. Roll between two pieces of parchment paper until approximately 1/4" thick. Cut into circles with a 2" cookie cutter.
  5. Place on baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to fully cool.
  6. With an electric mixer, combine all the ingredients for the filling until it becomes thick and smooth.
  7. Using a spatula, scrape the cream into a plastic baggie. Make a slit in one corner and thickly distribute the cream in a circular motion onto one cookies. Gently sandwich another cookie on top.
