Everyone loves Oreos, but this homemade version is so much better. The wafer cookies have a deep, rich chocolate flavor, and when sandwiched with the sweet vanilla filling, they create a heavenly experience.

  • 1 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder, sifted


Line two cookie sheets with parchment.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
