Making your own oreo-style cookies is pretty easy, it just requires a store bought cake mix and a few minutes of time, they’re well worth it!

COOKIE WAFERS:
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

CREME FILLING:
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.

Combine cake mix and shortening, add water. Mix well into a very thick dough, then scoop into 3/4 inch balls (a melon baller works great!), place them on parchment paper. Use the bottom of a glass to press them flat. They should be spaced about 1/2 an inch apart to keep them from running together during baking.
Bake about 5 minutes. Cool

Make the filling by Combining the powdered sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and shortening in a mixing bowl or kitchenaid mixer. As it’s mixing add hot water 1 Tbs at a time as needed. Fill the cooled cookies.

Makes 2 dozen cookies (4 dozen wafers)

    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.
