Homeade Oreo Cakesters
1 devils food cake mix
1/2 c. shortening or 1/3 cup oil.
Mix these ingredients together. Roll the dough into dime sized balls and put them on a cookie sheet. I then pressed them down a little bit so that they would bake flatter.
Bake at 350 degree for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes, they might not seem done, but take them out anyways, or they will get hard. As they cool, they will get softer.
Let them cool.
Then spread cream cheese frosting in the middle of two cookies and wala....They are done and they are great.
This will make about 15-20 cookies. I would strongly recommend doubling the recipe if you have a large family.
You can also make thicker cream cheese frosting using the following mixture if you would like a thicker middle:
1 8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 square butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 to 4 cups of powdered sugar, based on how thick you want it.
Mix these things together until they are smooth.
(I use cream cheese frosting out of pure laziness and it still tastes great!)
