Ingredients

Oreo Churros

  • 10 Oreos, cookie parts only
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup extra dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar, for dusting

Filling

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • Cream filling from 10 Oreos

Steps

Oreo Churros

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, and line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
  2. Separate Oreo insides from the cookies and place into 2 separate bowls.
  3. In the bowl of a food processor, grind Oreo cookies until the texture resembles sand. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, salt and Oreo crumbs.
  5. In a small saucepan, combine water and butter. Bring to a simmer until butter is melted. Turn off heat and add flour mixture, mixing until combined. Stir in eggs. Transfer to a pastry bag with a star tip.
  6. On prepared baking sheets, pipe spiral cookies about 2 1/2 inches in diameter (approximately 12 cookies). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until slightly crispy. Once slightly cooled, toss churros in sugar and set aside.
  7. Turn half of the churro cookies over, and pipe cream filling onto them. Top with the other half of the churro cookies and serve!

Filling

  1. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add butter, vanilla and shortening, and mix on high speed until fluffy and light.
  2. Gradually add powdered sugar on low speed, then add the cream from Oreos.
  3. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a round tip.
