By Popular Demand, Gluten-Free Homemade Oreos

November 11, 2007

At the urgent request of Betty, and by way of the following geniuses:  Smitten Kitchen, Hey, That Tastes Good, and Land o’ Lakes, the apparently irresistible Gluten-Free Homemade Oreos.

Step One:  Prepare the Gluten-Free Flour Substitute

2 cups rice flour
2/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1 t xanthan gum

Mix well and store your 3 cups of unflour in a container with a tight lid. 

Step Two:  Making the Wafers

1 1/4 cups unflour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 cup sugar
10 T softened butter (1/2 cup + 2 T butter)
1 large egg

In your Cuisinart, pulse the dry ingredients until well-mixed.  Drop in the butter and the egg, and process till a rich, chocolate-y dough forms.  Drop rounded teaspoons of dough about 2 inches apart onto a Silpat or parchment-lined cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.  Bake at 350 F for 8-9 minutes, or until the tops are dry-looking and set.  Cool completely on racks.

Step Three:  Mixing Up the Creamy Filling

1/4 cup softened butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups powdered sugar
2 t vanilla extract

Beat throughly in a mixer until light and creamy.

Spread a blob of frosting on one wafer and top with another wafer, making a sweet little sandwich.  Continue to make sandwiches until all your wafers are paired up.  As the cook, you are entitled to any broken ones, plus the orphan wafer without a mate that’s left over.  Don’t hesitate to frost them generously–there’s plenty of filling here.
