1. Homemade Oreos

Ingredients
for 40 cookies

COOKIE

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cups dark cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
CREAM FILLING

½ cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup (225 grams) of softened butter with the white sugar and salt, until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in eggs until fully incorporated.
  3. Sieve together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda into the mix. Blend well.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix together until combined.
  5. Turn the dough out onto your surface and push together into a flat square. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 325˚F (160˚C).
  7. Remove the dough from the fridge, and for ease of rolling out, divide the dough into 4 (this way the dough stays cool longer and prevents the need of re-chilling later on).
  8. To roll out the dough, place a quarter of the dough between two sheets of parchment paper (alternatively the dough can be rolled out on a lightly floured surface - though the parchment is preferred as it prevents any additional flour from altering the color/appearance of the dark cookies). Roll the dough between the two sheets of parchment to ¼-inch (½ cm) thickness.
  9. Using a small round cookie cutter (alternatively, we found the rim of a champagne glass to be a perfect size!) cut the dough into individual rounds and place on a large parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving at least ½-inch (1¼ cm) between each cookie.
  10. Pack together and re-roll out any scraps to cut additional cookies. Repeat with this process with each remaining ¼ of the dough.
  11. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes. If baking multiple trays at the same time, be sure to rotate the pans in the oven halfway through. Remove and transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  12. To make the filling, combine ½ cup (115 grams) butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Beat together until light and fluffy.
  13. Assemble the cookies by spreading a generous scoop of the icing onto one of the cookies and sandwiching it with another. Give it a light squeeze and scrape any excess off to clear and even out the sides.
  14. Serve with a glass of milk.
  15. Enjoy!

    2. Ice Cube Tray Pizza Bites

Ingredients
for 12 servings

16 oz pizza dough, divided
½ cup marinara sauce
1 tablespoon pesto
3 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
3 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup pepperoni, chopped
¼ cup onion, chopped
¼ cup bell pepper, chopped
¼ cup mushroom, chopped
¼ cup tomato, chopped
¼ cup ham, chopped
¼ cup pineapple, chopped
other assorted topping, if desired
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT

ice cube tray, silicone or hard plastic

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
  2. If using fresh dough, let sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes in a covered and lightly oiled bowl.
  3. On a floured surface, take one half of the dough and roll it out into a rectangle, about ⅛ of an inch (3 mm) thick. Repeat with other half of dough and set aside.
  4. Lightly oil your ice cube tray if it’s hard plastic.
  5. Transfer the dough to cover the tray and press the dough down into every hole, holding for about 5 seconds to ensure the dough stretches properly. If it tears, you can use excess dough to patch up any holes.
  6. Assemble each bite with approximately one teaspoon of sauce, such as marinara or pesto, one teaspoon of cheese, and desired toppings.
  7. Cover the prepared bites with remaining dough and roll over the ice cube tray with rolling pin to seal.
  8. Trim any excess dough and save for more pizza bites.
  9. Freeze the ice cube tray for about an hour, until the dough has set.
  10. Flip the tray onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet to release the bites. If necessary, use a paring knife to gently loosen.
  11. Cut and separate the bites.
  12. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and serve warm.

3. Homemade Cheese Crackers

Ingredients
for 6 servings

8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons ice water

Preparation

  2. Using a hand mixer or standing mixer, combine cheese, butter, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Once combined, mix in the flour and add the ice water one tablespoon at a time.
  4. The dough should hold together but crumble apart if you break it up in your hand. If it seems too dry, add a little more ice water.
  5. Separate dough into two halves and pack together into discs. Wrap in parchment paper and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  6. Roll out dough to ⅛ of an inch (½ cm), pinching the cracks on the ends.
  7. Cut into 1 inch x 1 inch (2 ½ x 2 ½ cm) squares and pierce a hole in the middle of each square for ventilation during baking.
