    • Oreo Cookies

      1 (18.25 oz) box Dark Fudge Cake Mix (Tried using homemade recipe, didn't taste like oreos)
      1/3 cup water
      2 tablespoons shortening

      3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
      1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1/2 cup shortening (no substitution)
      3 tablespoons hot water

      Preheat oven to 325F. Blend all ingredients; then knead with your
      hands until it is pliable like dough. Form dough into 3/4 inch balls
      and press flat, 1/2 inch apart on greased cookie sheets. Bottom of
      a glass works nice for this. Bake 4 to 6 minutes or until cookies are
      crunchy. I should think you could refrigerate the dough in cylinder
      shaped rolls for a couple of hours and slice 1/8 inch thick, as well.
      Let cookies cool on sheets.
      Combine filling ingredients and mix well. Form into balls about 1/2 to
      3/4 inch in diameter, again using your hands. Sandwich one
      filling in the center of two cookies and carefully press down until
      the filling spreads almost to the edge.

      Makes 2 dozen cookies (4 dozen wafers)

        I just made this recipe. it got the thumbs up from kids. I also made a batch using boxed yellow cake mix. I found out that if you make the cookie part a bit bigger and not cook it for so long you have just made a cakester.
