Oreo French Macaroons

Le Second Try
Chocolate cookies with cream cheese filling
a.k.a. Oreo Macaroons

Here is the finished product!

In a food processor or blender, mix the almond flour, powdered sugar and cocoa powder together 

In a separate bowel, whip the egg whites until frothy

Then add the sugar and whip until the mix can form peaks

Sift the dry mix into the egg and sugar foamy mix

Not all of the dry mix will be sifted through, there will be a few bits of almonds left over, DO NOT MIX THESE IN!!

Fold the two mixes in with one another

The cookies on the left are the ones that have already been cooked, and the ones on the right are uncooked
To pipe them out onto the parchment paper covered metal pan, fill a plastic bag and clip the corner 

Mix the butter, powdered sugar, and cream cheese to form the filling

La Fin!

The chocolate cookies:
1 cup (100 gr) powdered sugar
½ cup powdered almonds (about 2 ounces, 50 gr, sliced almonds, pulverized)
3 tablespoons (25 gr) unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
2 large egg whites, at room temperature
5 tablespoons (65 gr) granulated sugar

I found the cookie recipe from this website

The Filling:
4-6 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbs. Butter
4 ounces of cream cheese - half a package

This recipe is not exact, It is just an estimate, you can use more or less of any of the filing ingredients to your liking.
