Homemade Oreo's

{oreo's only without the funky wax frosting}
Okay, that was kind of harsh- everyone loves Oreo's, it's just unfortunate that the frosting leaves a waxy film on the roof of your mouth. And if you knew what that frosting was made of, you might cry. The first time I had these was when I was 14- and I've never forgotten them! I could just sit and eat the entire batch in one sitting, and if I had no will power I probably would. Not only are they delish, they are mega easy and fast! And, pretty fool proof, if you are like me. I hope you enjoy them!
1 Better Crocker Devil's Food Cake mix
2 eggs
3/4 cup butter, softened

1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: Combine cake mix, eggs and butter together and mix until well combined and all the cake mix is incorporated. Dough will be thick, so using your hands isn't a bad idea. Chill for 20 minutes. Roll into small balls, and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes at 350F. Let cool.
For the frosting, begin by beating the cream cheese and butter together with an electric mixer until creamy. Add powdered sugar and beat again until smooth. Then add vanilla and beat again. Once cookies are cool, spoon a small spoonful of frosting on the flat side of one cook and sandwich with another cookie. Makes about 16-20 cookies depending on size.

  1. I vote these the best cookies EVER! How do you get the cookie so thin and flat though? Mine are always puffy, thick and round...
