Ingredients for cookies and cream burfi
- Milk powder
- Condensed milk
- Double stuff cream filled cookies (Oreos or I used Back to Nature available at Whole Foods in the US)
- Vanilla extract
Optionally, add in extra cream filling from a few additional cookies for more cookies and cream flavor.
Note: Burfi is traditionally made with khoya/mawa (condensed milk solids). I’ve used condensed milk as a short cut and also for the flavor.
Making the burfi
So, this Indian fusion dessert is pretty easy to make. It does take some time to dry and cool so I would allot atleast 3-4 hours. The flavor comes through best when cooled and set. If you can, leave it overnight.
For visual appeal you can:
- Take halves or pieces of the cookie and push in gently on top before the sweet cools
- Cut off thin slivers of the edges to show more of the black and white cookie filled look before serving
