An Elrod Oreo

Late Sunday night after we walked the beach and had already eaten ice cream hubs said he really wanted a cookie, but just one. I added to that saying I'd really like an oreo

Then I remembered we had some of these ice cream sandwich cookies left over

So I thought I'd try to make my own oreos

1/4 cup butter; room temp
3/4-1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla; good real vanilla bean kind!

1   beat all the ingredients together until fluffy
2   voila! the middle of an oreo, but better because the vanilla flavor is swoon-worthy
3   slather onto a cookie, put another on top, get a glass of milk

this will make the inside of about 6 giant oreos, or if you make the ice cream sandwich cookie recipe and just cut the dough with a small biscuit cookie cutter it could fill about 1/3 of them

o so many possibilities just opened up, I want to make some in shapes with cookie cutters!

Also this really hit the spot, it was like a grown up gourmet oreo, fresh, vanilla filling and deeply chocolate cookie! WINNER!
