Ingredients

Cookie

  • 15.25 oz devil's food cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ c shortening

Frosting

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ¼ c butter (½ stick), softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp peppermint (not mint)
  • 4 c powdered sugar

Instructions

Cookie

  • Mix together.
  • The dough will be pretty stiff - it's supposed to be that way.
  • Roll into balls and put on baking sheet.
  • Make them little balls (like 1").They cook more evenly that way.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
  • Immediately transfer to a cooling rack.

Frosting

  • Mix until smooth.

Assembly

  • When cookies are cool, frost them and then sandwich them like an Oreo.
  • This will only make about 12 cookies total depending on how big you make them.

Notes

If you'd rather make traditional oreos, omit the peppermint and add another tsp of vanilla instead.
