Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

…kinda like Oreos, only soft and chewy and…

with cream cheese frosting in the middle, instead of whatever the heck that other filling is. Ah, yes–a significant improvement on the age old classic that the cavemen enjoyed. It’s a new day for Oreo lovers I’ll tell you!

Ingredients:

1 Devil’s Food cake mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup shortening

Mix everything together until smooth. Roll or scoop dough into balls about the size of a large grape.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet about 9-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow to cool on wire rack.

Frosting

1/2 lb. powdered sugar

1/4 cup butter

4 oz. cream cheese

1 tsp. vanilla

Beat until smooth. Spread frosting on bottom side of cookie and squish another one on top of it.

Now be careful here–because, as you can see–it’s real easy to get carried away with this step. In fact, our dear friend–who gave us the recipe–and whose doing the driving in the above picture added two more wads of icing to this cookie.

You think I’m kidding?

Here’s proof.

Now this is some serious frosting love my friends. One bite and that filling is going everywhere.

We can handle it.

heh, heh, heh.
