Homemade Oreo Cookies

Nothing is better than America's favorite cookie, baked right in your own oven! This homemade Oreo cookie recipe has been in my family for years and is so simple. It goes as follows:

1 box Devil's Food cake mix
2 eggs
2/3 cup shortening

Dump all the ingredients into a Kitchen Aid with the paddle attachment, and mix until it comes together and forms a dough. Then roll dough into 1 inch balls and place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. (time will vary depending on the size of the rolled balls)

After the cookies are done, I move them onto a clean kitchen towel, however a cooling rack would be fine. Let them cool COMPLETELY before frosting.

I never use a specific frosting recipe, I just throw things in and blend it, adding more things as I go. (or as Jacob Buhler would call it, making it with love) A basic cream cheese frosting works. I found a good one on & I attached the link below! Anyways, spread a generous amount of this frosting between 2 cooled cookies, and enjoy!!(:
