I promise these are the best homemade oreos you will ever have. They fly off the plate.
2 boxes devils food cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines brand)
1 1/2 c crisco (butter flavored)
1 tsp vanilla
Combine all ingredients in mixer until well blended. Roll into small balls and place on un-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 8 minutes. You'll know to take them out when they appear to begin to crack slightly. Remove from pan and let cool before frosting.
Cream cheese frosting:
8 oz cold cream cheese
5 tbsp softened butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 c powdered sugar
Beat first three ingredients, then gradually add the powdered sugar. Add food coloring if desired. So good on these homemade oreos!
