Frequently asked questions – FAQ
Can I use double stuffed Oreos or thin Oreos for these cookies?
No, make sure to use the regular Oreos to keep the texture of these cookies the same. If you use the double stuffed oreos, the stuffing will bring too much moisture to these cookies and if you use the think ones, there won’t be enough cookie or stuffing to make the exact cookie dough that I made for this recipe.
So make sure that you stick with the regular Oreo cookies for this recipe!
How to store these Oreo sugar cookies?
These chocolate sugar cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
You can also store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Make sure to bring them down to room temperature before enjoying them, otherwise, they will be too hard.
These cookies can also be frozen in an air-tight container for up to 2 months. Thaw them in the fridge overnight and then let them get back to room temperature before enjoying them.
Do I have to frost them?
No you don’t.
Frosting them is not necessary but it helps make the sugar cookie taste like an Oreo. I frosted them because I was trying to make a copycat CRUMBL Oreo cookie, but if that’s not what you’re going for, you can leave them naked.

Hi there, super excited to try this recipe! Could you please clarify what one stick of butter is? 8 tablespoons (113 grams)? And do you use unsalted butter? Thanks!
These were really good. I am not a fan of frosting on cookies, but I made them to serve with my homemade cookies and cream ice cream. Sort of my own take on pizookies, by BJ’s restaurant. So I just omitted the frosting and served them warm, topped with my homemade ice cream. Fantastic!!!
Thank you! This sounds delish!!
