Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies

Who doesn’t love Oreo cookies? These “Oreo” style gluten free cookies from Glutino maybe aren’t so healthy, but as a special treat, they definitely make my son happy :-) And as far as “imitation” Oreos go, these taste pretty dang close to the original. I actually wish they didn’t taste as good as they do, so I wouldn’t eat so many myself!
Back in our pre-diagnosis days, I hosted a bug-themed party for my son’s 3rd birthday. One of the games we played was “Put the Spots on the Ladybug” which involved the kids opening Oreo cookies, licking the cream filling, and sticking it to a red poster board with a simple lady bug drawing, like so:
A little bit gross, but lots of fun. Now that we have an acceptable gluten free alternative, I’m planning to use this game again at my daughter’s upcoming birthday party.
I have also used the Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies for making the “Cookies and Cream Cake” from my “The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten-Free” cookbook. This cake turned out AMAZING and is definitely my new favorite. It was easy to make look good too, with sprinkled cookie crumbs on top of the frosting (I have a pretty disastrous track record with cake decorating). Now I just need an occasion to celebrate, so I have an excuse to make this again :-)
