Homemade Oreos

One day I decided to make homemade oreos for my coworkers.  They are super easy see the recipe below:




Double Yum!

Homemade Oreos {cookies}
1 devil's food cake mix
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs

Mix the ingredients together.  Roll into dime size balls and place on cooke sheet.  I like to make them more disc like rather than ball shape.  The disc shape makes the cookies easier to put together.  Bake at 350 degrees for ~8 minutes.  Let cool completely before frosting and making sandwiches.

Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 square butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 to 4 c. powdered sugar

Mix ingredients until smooth {all should be at room temperature}.  Chill the mixture for about 30 minutes.  Frost the bottom side of the cookies so that they stay together.
