We just love Oreo cookies and we want more.
So instead of buying lots of Double Stuf Oreo, we’ve decided to get creative.
Let’s make a Giant Oreo Cookie!
Preheat your oven to 325ºF.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together 1 and 1/2 cups special dark cocoa powder, 1 and 1/2 cups flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt, then set aside.
Into a large bowl, cream together 1 cup softened butter and 2 cups sugar. Whisk 2 large eggs and add them and, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract and continue mixing.
Add the dry ingredients a little at a time and mix on medium speed just until combined.
Spray pans with non-stick cooking spray. Place about 2 cups of dough into each pan leaving 1/4" from the top.
Wrap leftover dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 20 minutes to firm up.
Bake pans for 45 minutes until cookie is baked through and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
To make Oreo decorations: Dust work surface with flour and roll out the leftover cookie dough until 1/4 inch thick. Cut out triangles and letters.
Roll pieces of dough into a rope to make the remaining cookie accents. Place cut out cookie accents on parchment paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Bake at 325ºF for 6 to 8 minutes or until set.
To make filling: In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup butter, 4 cups powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste and2 tablespoons milk using a handle mixer set to medium.
Line an 8" round cake pan with parchment paper and fill pan with filling using a spatula to make even and smooth. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to set.

To assembly the cookie: Place one large cookie, wider side up on a plate. Remove filling from cake pan and place on top of the cookie.
Flip the second large cookie over and place on top of the filling.
To add the decorations, use chocolate frosting as the "glue" to attach the accents.
Then eat and enjoy with lots of milk!
