Homemade Oreos

Ingredients for Cookies-
2 Boxes of Devil’s Food cake mix
¾ Cup Shortening
4 Eggs

Ingredients for frosting-
ShorteningPowdered Sugar
1 TBS Vanilla
¼ Cup Milk

First, mix all the ingredients for the cookies together, either with a hand mixer or an electric mixer. The dough should be pretty thick. Next make small balls with the dough and put on a cookie sheet. (No need to grease.) The dough balls don’t need to be as big as you would do if you were making regular cookies because you will be using 2 cookies to make one oreo cookie. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. The trick to keep them soft is to take them out when they look not quite done, makes for a soft, yummy cookie!For the frosting, I kind of just mix the ingredients until its sweet enough and thick enough. I would start with a cup and a half of shortening and add more if it doesn’t look like enough. Just add powdered sugar until you think it’s thick and sweet enough.Let the cookies cool before frosting them. Enjoy!*Its also fun to add color dye to the frosting for special occasions!
