2 boxes Devil's Food cake mix
1 and 1/2 cup shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
Cream Cheese Frosting:
3 ounces of cream cheese
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all the ingredients for the cookies together until well blended. (We use our hands to knead it!)
Roll into small 2 inch balls and place far apart on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Cookies will flatten.
Cool completely and make frosting.
Cream the softened butter and cream cheese together, then add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
You may need to add just a teaspoon or two of milk if the frosting is too stiff.
Frost the bottom of one cookie, and then place another on the frosting like an Oreo sandwich.
