No one ever complained about an Oreo™ cookie showing up on the cookie platter during the holidays! These chocolate sandwich cookies are inspired by America’s favorite cookie, but are made from scratch using dark cocoa and marshmallow frosting. These slice-and-bake cookies can be made ahead of time and stored for later to accommodate short-notice events, a crazy schedule and everything in between. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Cookie dough rolls can be wrapped and refrigerated up to 48 hours before baking. To freeze, place wrapped cookie dough rolls in freezer, and freeze until firm. Once dough is firm, make sure ends of plastic are twisted, and place rolls in large resealable freezer bag. Freeze up to 1 month. To thaw, let dough stand 30 to 45 minutes at room temperature or until easy to cut into slices. Remove plastic; slice, and continue as directed in recipe.
  • For a nicely shaped cookie, rotate logs every 30 minutes during refrigeration or freezing until firm so dough remains rounded.
  • Shape up your cookies! Rotate the roll slightly with each cut so the roll stays rounded.
