Foodie Friday: Soft, Homemade Oreo Cookies

img_5418.jpg

I'm obviously on a cookie kick right now and this one is an all-time fave! I love it because it's unique, delicious, and perfect to bring to parties or gatherings when you want to be a total show off. I'll often color the frosting in between the two cookies different colors depending on the holiday (or football game)! That can be fun. This one came from my Aunt Jodi, hope you all enjoy! Soft, Homemade Oreo Cookies

Cookies:

2 Duncan Hines Deluxe Devil’s Food Cake Mixes (not the add-in’s, just the powder stuff)

1 ½ cup shortening

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

Mix well and roll into small cherry-sized balls. The smaller the cuter. Do not grease pan or mash down cookie dough! Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Leave on pan to cool for 2 minutes. Move to cooling rack or parchment paper.

Frosting filling:

8 oz cream cheese

3 ½ cup powdered sugar

½ square butter

1 tsp vanilla
