Directions

  1. Coat 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray or parchment paper, set aside.
  2. Combine butter, sugars and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium speed until light, about 5 minutes, scraping bowl and beaters occasionally.

  6. Mix on low speed until incorporated.
  7. Scrape the dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap.
  8. Cover with another piece of wrap and press the dough into a rough disk.
  9. Refrigerate the dough until it is firm -- several hours or overnight.
  10. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, arrange rack at the middle level of the oven.
  11. Divide the dough into 3 parts and roll one at a time on a lightly floured work surface into a 6-inch square.
  12. Cut the dough with a fluted or plain round cutter into nine 2-inch cookies and set them on the prepared pan.
  13. Continue with the remaining dough.
  14. After rolling all the dough, press the scraps back together and make about 10 more cookies.
  15. Pierce the cookies several times with a fork and sprinkle them lightly with icing sugar.

  18. Keep the cookies between layers of waxed paper in an air-tight tin or plastic container.
  19. For oreo cookie filling:
