The other day I was at the supermarket and on the way in there was an advert for the latest Oreos – strawberry cheesecake – I mean yum – how good does that sound?!?! To me it sounded heavenly – and I knew I had to make some – immediately!!!

Oreos have that very particular flavour that is distinctive to them. A little while back I discovered that this is because they are made using dutched cocoa powder. This means that the dutch process used to make the cocoa powder has alkalized the final product. Normal cocoa powder has a PH between 5 and 6 where as dutched has a PH of 7.

It took me a little while to track down an alkalised cocoa powder. When I did I was surprised that, whilst much darker that normal cocoa powder (quite a bit darker than it looks in the photos,) it wasn’t as dark as the ones used for Oreos. This is because the cocoa powder in Oreos has been blackened – which is basically a more heavily alkalized cocoa powder.

Sadly I couldn’t manage to get my hands on any of this – however, as soon as I tasted the dutched cocoa powder, I fell in love.

So dark and intense and perfect against the strawberry cheesecake filling. You won’t be sorry you gave it a go – it’s absolutely delectable!

Once made I would store these in the fridge – the weather has been sooooooooo hot recently that my coconut oil is completely liquid at room temp! Practically unheard of in England! However, this also means that the filling will soften at room temperature. If you do keep them out beware that the traditional Oreo split, lick, eat becomes essential!

So here goes – happy baking!!! :)

 

(This recipe makes 36 Super Scrummy Irresistible Biscuits that went almost as fast as I could count them – however, if you need less, the recipe also works if divided it in two or you can store half the dough in the fridge in an airtight container, for up to a week, for use later!)
