Rom Breslavsky’s Oreo cookies


For the dough:

115 grams of cold butter
1/2 cup (100 grams) of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup + 2 1/2 tablespoons (165 grams) of flour
1/4 cup (35 grams) of Dutch cocoa powder

For the filling:

170 grams of butter
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract/paste
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 cups (240 grams) of powdered sugar


Dough preparation:

In a mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, mix the cold butter with the sugar and baking soda until it forms a uniform mixture (about 2-3 minutes).

Add the flour and cocoa powder to the mixture and continue mixing until a dough forms, about 3-4 additional minutes.

Roll out the dough to a thickness of 0.3 cm on parchment paper.

Cut out circles with a diameter of 3-4 cm and gently transfer them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

 Place the baking sheets in the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 175°C.

Bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes, then remove and allow them to cool completely. Turn half of the cookies upside down.

Filling preparation:

Before making the filling, have the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and salt ready.

Put the butter in a medium saucepan and heat over low heat. Bring to a boil and continue cooking until the butter stops bubbling (about 2-3 minutes).

Transfer the butter to a mixing bowl through a sieve, add the salt and vanilla extract/paste, and mix using a paddle attachment.

Add the powdered sugar and continue mixing until a soft and uniform mixture is obtained. Use a silicone spatula to scrape the bottom of the bowl if needed.

Transfer the filling to a piping bag and pipe onto the overturned cookies, placing a dollop of filling on each. Sandwich with another cookie.

Allow the cookies to cool and set before serving.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.

**It is recommended to use measuring spoons to get the exact amounts of salt and baking soda**

Rom Breslavsky (20)

Rom is the younger brother of Ami, the older brother of Ziv, and the son of Tami and Ofir. He's a person who's full of emotion and generosity towards others. Rom is a fun-loving and mischievous guy who enjoys living life to the fullest. He's passionate about sports, and since his abduction, many sports events in Israel have paid tribute to Rom and his bravery.

On October 7th, Rom worked as a security guard at the Nova Festival in Ra'im. Throughout the event, Rom attended to, guarded, and assisted the injured festival-goers. "He moved around there like a lion, guarding the women's bodies to prevent them from being abused or kidnapped. At one point, when an RPG missile was fired towards a group of youths, some running towards the road, Rom stayed on-site, helped, and saved people until communication was lost with him.

"I want to tell him to stay strong, that we love him, and that we're bringing him back home very soon. We're doing everything we can to bring you back, so please hold on a little longer. I believe in him, I know what kind of person he is. He'll be home soon. We all love him, so don't forget him for a moment, and let's do everything possible to bring him back," shares Ami, Rom's brother. “We're with you every step of the way and we won’t stop until Rom and every single hostage is home.”

Here are some testimonials about Rom's bravery:

"My name is Naama Gal, and Rom, the hero, rescued me from the truck, and thanks to him, I'm alive. I won't ask how you're doing because we're all struggling, and our hearts aren't whole. I just want to say that I mention him in every article and interview, and I thank him every morning when I wake up, praying for his swift and complete recovery!!! Sending you lots of hugs and love... If you need anything, I'm here."

"Hi, darling... hard days are passing for all of us... after recovering from several surgeries, I felt compelled to reach out to you to share a little about how Rom took care of me and looked after me. I arrived at the hospital after I had been shot 3 times - completely unconscious, today however some of my memories started to come back, and it was important for me to support you and praise Rom, who is truly one of the bravest men I've met! If you want to hear more, I'd be happy to tell you ❤️ Hugging and praying that he is surviving this."
