  3. Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet ones. Mix until just combined.
  4. Divide the dough in half, shape into 2 circles and wrap in cling film. Refrigerate for 20 min.
  5. Arrange the dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper lightly dusted with flour, and roll into a rectangular, ¼ inch high.
  6. Repeat with the other dough, and refrigerate both cookie sheets for 10 min.
  7. With the help of a heart-shaped (or any shape you prefer) cookie cutter, start making your cookies.
  8. Once all the cookies are ready and arranged on a baking tray covered with parchment, refrigerate them for another 10 mins.
  9. Heat the oven to 350°F/175C. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. In the meantime, prepare the cream filling: in a bowl, whisk together softened butter, half and half, vanilla, and salt and beat until combined.
  11. Gradually add the powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time, and mix until the cream comes together.
  12. Transfer the filling into a piping bag. Pipe the cream onto half of the cookies and top with the remaining ones to make your yummy homemade Oreos. Enjoy!
