I love Oreo cookies ever since I got to know them, when I was about 15 years old. A childhood friend of mine brought them from the States, and it was love at first bite. I loved the idea of two chocolate cookies filled with vanilla cream – it’s just a great combination of flavors.

Ever since then, and when I found Martha Stewart’s recipe for the most popular cookies in the world, I started making homemade Oreo cookies for every occasion. They’re everyone’s favorites – chocolatey, vanilla-y and simply delicious.

This recipe is very easy to make – the dough is made quickly in the food processor; the filling is a breeze and the result is so good. If you like Oreo cookies – you’re definitely going to like these too.
