White Chocolate Oreo Sandwich Cookies

Oreo sandwich cookies are one of those things which are taking over the internet.  Started by the amazing Picky Palate, variations have hit all over the internet.  Hell, I even tried one myself a couple of months ago (although, sadly, gingerbread Oreos aren’t necessarily very readily available!)

However, one of the few exciting Oreos that you can get in the UK are the chocolate creme ones.  My friend Tash gave them a go with cinnamon, but I wanted to make something more along the lines of these white fudge Oreos that I used to eat by the box-ful as a kid.  That, obviously, led me to the idea of white chocolate.  After pouring over pretty much every recipe book I have (which led to a large stack of books preventing Beardy Boyfriend from using the kitchen table for such silly side activities as eating breakfast) – I found the perfect recipe from Nigella Lawson.  Now, I’m not one of those people who are fanatic about Nigella (trust me, they do exist), but Beardy Boyfriend’s mum gave me a copy of How to Be A Domestic Goddess, and I’ve found that a lot of the recipes in there are both delicious and easily adaptable.  So when I saw this one, I thought it would be good for sandwiching chocolate Oreos.  Beardy Boyfriend agreed, saying that although he didn’t like Oreos, he liked these.  Success!
