Eggless Oreo Cookies

Oreo is my daughter's favourite cookies. Last month while preparing cookies for the Baking Partners Challenge, I skipped preparing these cookies as Sruti was ill at that time. I didn't want to prepare them and keep them away from her. Now as she is fine, I prepared it yesterday. She was so happy seeing those cute cookies. I am having a tough time keeping these cookies away from her. She just wants to finish off every thing in a single day. I am also very happy about the taste of these cookies. They are so tasty even I find it very hard to say no to the next cookie. You need to keep these cookies refrigerated in order to keep them crisp. Otherwise due to the butter cream they turn chewy. The cookie recipe was given by Reenie of Cinnamon Spice And Everything Nice adapted from Serious Eats. I made the eggless version of the recipe given substituting the egg with milk.
