Homemade Oreos

homemade oreos 003

Made these beauties with my beautiful girls from church tonight!  So much fun and so yummy!  The recipe comes from a blog called “pen n’ paperflowers studio and design”.

cookie ingredients:

1 Devil’s Food cake mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup oil

vanilla cream filling:

1/4 cup room temperature, unsalted butter

1/4 cup vegetable shortening

2 – 3 cups powdered sugar (2 was about right)

2 teaspoons vanilla

1  For cookies, heat oven to 350.  Blend cake mix, eggs and oil.  Roll dough into small balls (we used my Pampered Chef mini scoop).  Place on cookie sheets and bake for 8 – 9 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool for 1 minute before removing from sheets.

2  For filling, cream butter and shortening together then add powdered sugar and vanilla.  (I doubled this so the cookies would have a good amount of filling and it was just the right amount.)

3  Assemble cookies by spreading filling on the bottom of one and then pressing another on top!
