Homemade Vegan Cookie Sandwiches

Do you know how long it took me to realize that there is no milk in Oreos? Years. I’m talking about the age of nineteen. I finally decided to just check the ingredients on a bag of Oreos, because you never know right? And I found out that there was no milk! I had spent my entire childhood not eating Oreos for nothing! There is something truly delicious about two chocolate cookies with a creamy vanilla centre. So of course I had to try and make them myself!
They don’t look quite so perfect as the kind you buy in a store but they are every bit as delicious. In fact I might even go so far to say that they are more delicious.
 I found the dough a bit crumbly so next time I will add some more soy milk to make it a bit more malleable and easy to work with. Father’s Day is coming up and I am planning a dinner for my family. One of my absolute favourite things about the new apartment is how big the kitchen is. There’s plenty of room for me to cook and for everybody around the kitchen table. I love planning meals for people. I’m looking forward to a summer filled with dinner parties, brunches and barbecues in the back yard!
Oh and doughnuts. Definitely going to be making lots more doughnuts. I’m considering an attempt at frying doughnuts soon, I will let you know how it goes!
