What's The Best gluten-free "oreo"?
Posted 16 July 2007 - 10:26 AM
Her FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE cookie pre-Celiacs were Oreos (and Oreo Blizzards of course!). Well, obviously she doesn't eat them any more but I would REALLY love to have some almost-Oreos for her birthday!
I've seen a few gluten-free varieties of the chocolate cookies w/ white frosting in the middle but I want to know from experience which ones y'all like best (so far I'm leaning toward the Kinnikinnick) and are most like Oreos.

Her standard fave right now is the Pamela's Double Chocolate we can get in the store when we do our regular shopping but boy will she be happy w/ "Oreos". I'll have to whip up a "Blizzard" for her, too!

You can also make an ice cream cake with said cookie crumbles (if your wee one is a fan of the Carvel-style cakes).
It really works best with a spring-form pan (like you use for making cheese cake).
Step 1 - line pan with parchmant paper (you may need a little bit of butter/grease to make it stick.)
Step 2 - Scoop and smooth in soft ice cream, to fill the pan about 1/2 way up.
Step 3 - Sprinkle on cookie crumbles
Step 4 - Freeze until ice cream sets up (at lease a few hours, easier overnight)
Step 5 - Scoop & smooth more ice cream on top (lay it on thick, so you don't have to work too many strokes or you will pull up the cookie layer)
Step 6 - Freeze until ice cream sets
Step 7 - Unmold and decorate! (DO NOT TRY TO ICE WITH BUTTERCREAM, it will freeze faster than you can work, a looser, coolwhip-type coating works better, or you can just cover the thing in more cookie crumbs)
I did this for a friend, with her two favorite flavors of ice cream and it was a big hit.
It also helps to have the cutting knife in hot water before trying to slice.
