Homemade Candy Cane Oreos

RECIPE:

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups flour
  • Crushed candy canes (about 6 candy canes, crushed)

FROSTING:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) softened butter
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 3 cups powdered sugar

For cookies:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together sugars and butter.  Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla.  Slowly stir in cocoa powder.  Add dry ingredients, adding flour one cup at a time.  Using a cookie scoop, drop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.  Let cookies cool completely before frosting.

For frosting:  Cream together butter and cream cheese.  Add vanilla and cream.  Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time.  If runny, add more powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached (it shouldn't be runny).  Put a generous amount of frosting on a cookie.  Put another cookie on top to create a cookie sandwich.  Roll sides in crushed candy canes. Enjoy!
