Sheetz "Gobbz" Cookies for #SundaySupper

Copycat recipes are the fun theme for today's #SundaySupper, and I knew immediately what I wanted to create! Sheetz "Gobbz" cookies. Sheetz is a gas station and convenience store near my home that I frequent occasionally, and along with gas they sell made to order food, and bakery items called Shweetz that are delivered daily. One of their bakery items is a cookie called Gobbz. It is quite tasty, slightly addicting and sort of resembles a whoopie pie. I made my cookie a little smaller, and I used  buttercream for the middle. I think they are yummy!


Copycat "Gobbz" Cookies


2 1/2 cup Flour 
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 cup Canola Oil
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoon Buttermilk
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 tablespoon Vegetable Shortening
1 cup Sugar
1 large Egg
1 teaspoon Orange Flavoring
Orange Color
1/2 cup Solid Vegetable Shortening
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 teaspoon clear Vanilla Extract
4 cups sifted Confectioner's Sugar
1-2 tablespoons Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix your flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
Stir together your canola oil and buttermilk in a small bowl and set aside.
Cream together the butter and vegetable shortening. Add sugar, and egg. Mix well. Add the flour, alternating with the buttermilk until all are combined.
Add in orange flavoring and orange coloring. Blend until completely orange.
Cover batter with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Use a 1 tbl. scoop to place batter on a cookie sheet covered with parchment. 
Bake for 6-7 minutes. Let cool for 4 minutes on cooling rack. Once baked and cooled keep the cookies in a closed container until all of them are baked.

Cream together the vegetable shortening and butter. Add extract. Gradually add the confectioners' sugar and mix well, scraping the sides. Add milk a little at a time until you have a creamy consistency.
Use a Wilton # 2A tip, and pipe the buttercream icing onto one side of the cookie. Top with another cookie.
Enjoy this tasty treat!
Here are the two cookies next to one another!
