Can anyone share a Black Chocolate Cookie recipe that's made from scratch. :unsure: I have seen clone recipes for the Oreo cookie but they use cake mixes ... I prefer to do mine at home from scratch. I came across a Black Choco Cookie recipe in Gourmet or Bon Appetit but unfortunately I lost my copy of that magazine's particular issue.
I hope someone can share a recipe as homemade cookie baking is now my interest.

Thanks a lot!! :rolleyes:

You should also look into the black cocoa sold at King Arthur. That'll help you along in the color department.

In Sherry Yards newest baking book, her chocolate shortbread cookies are very dark and similar. It will get you pretty darn close to the oreo but the people posting before me are right you do need to buy the black cocoa powder to be exact.

I recently got out Nancy Silverton's Sandwich book from the library, and she had an Oreo-alike recipe in thar. I've taken the book back and didn't copy it... but maybe someone else has it, or you could find it?

A friend who has been starting a baking business makes a version. Obviously, I don't have his recipes, but I do remember that for the filling he used an uncooked vanilla buttercream (confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla paste). It was delicious, but not that dead-white of Oreo filling, more of a light tan. If you try it, use a colorless vanilla (if such a thing exists?).

Looks like someone already posted a recipe for you from Epicurious.com, but FYI, they have just about every recipe from Gourmet and Bon Appetit archived on their website. If you ever lose the magazine again, you know where to go!

I use a chocolate dough recipe that works great for these. You can even underbake them for a fudgy cookie. I'll get the recipe for u soon

This is a great recipe that is better then any other oreo i have tried. The cookie dough is very short and crumbly so piping the filling requires a delicate touch. Good luck.

Kristin

INGREDIENTS
8 cups AP flour
3 cups cocoa
2 t salt
2 # butter
2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter
5 cups 10x

METHOD
Sift dry together. Cream butter and sugar, slowly add in dry ingedients. Knead slightly before seperating into thirds and wrapping in plastic. Keeps in fridge or freezer. Roll out room temp dough, use cocoa powder/ flour mix. Use round or fluted cutters and bake in 350 oven for 10 minutes. Be careful when baking as the dough is very black and it is hard to tell when they are done.

Beat 1/2 cup butter till light and add in 10 x slowly. Store in piping bag at room temp.

Thanks very much for the recipe, mybench. What brand of cocoa do you usually use for it? Dutched or not?

Oh, and it would be great if you could add it to recipeGullet when you have a chance. Thanks! :smile:

I like valhrona cocoa the best, it has a dark color and intense flavor. It's expensive but worth it. I'm attempting to post the recipe now.
