homemade oreos with cream cheese frosting

 I promise these are the best homemade oreos you will ever have.  They fly off the plate.

Oreo cookies:

2 boxes devils food cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines brand)
1 1/2 c crisco (butter flavored)
3 eggs
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!
