Bite Size Oreo Cookies

Bite Size Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (Oreo's)

1 3/4 c. margarine
1 large pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. featherlight mix
3/4 c. special dark cocoa powder
1 3/4 tsp. xanthan gum
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/3 tsp. salt

Cream margarine, pudding mix, and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture.

Chill about 1 hour. Dust a clean surface with potato starch or featherlight mix. Roll out about 1/8 of an inch thick, adding enough potato starch to make the dough less sticky. Cut with a small, round cookie cutter (about 1 inch in diameter to make minis).

Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool.

3 3/4 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbs. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. vegetable shortening
2 Tbs. hot water

Combine all filling ingredients and beat until smooth. Roll 1 - 2 teaspoons of filling into a ball. Gently squish the ball of filling between 2 cookies. Store in a closed container.

Happy Cooking!!
