The person who posted it says they’re even better than the name-brand.

Maybe it’s just because 2020 remains the strangest year of our lifetimes, but TikTok continues to be one of the best resources for recipes these days. Countless food trends seem to originate on the ostensibly song-and-dance-based social media platform, ranging from new spins on classics to gluten-free delights to legitimately useful kitchen hacks.

Now, the youths of TikTok are even showing us how we can transcend our consumer habits and recreate store-bought snacks like Oreos for ourselves. Thanks to some critical info from @ziaaaaamiaaaa, who was compelled to act after nearly running out of “real” Oreos, this recipe shows that you just need a little bit of time and a handful of fairly common ingredients to make a classic.

For the cookie, use butter, white sugar, eggs, salt, flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. If you happen to have any oreos in the house, stamp them into the cookies you’ve created for an authentic print before placing them in the oven for 10-15 minutes. If you don’t have any Oreos at home but do have a lot of free time, maybe try and etch in the ornate Oreo design using some sort of kitchen implement.

But what about the creme filling? Glad you asked, because that’s even easier to put together. Get more butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Whip that up, shove it between two of the cookies you made, and you’re all set.

It’s entirely possible that you’re totally out of baking projects at this point in the year, but you can’t go wrong creating a homemade spin on an undeniably classic cookie. Best of all, you can choose whatever amount of ‘Stuf’ you want. It might be worth trying this out just for that alone.
