nicole favorite cookies

Well, i guess they are tied for favorite with peanut butter oatmeal, for which I have no recipe.....

Quick Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
(from Mary Rempel, Altona, Manitoba- Best of Country Cookies Cookbook)

2 pkgs devil's food cake mix
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs

1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

(if you are bryan, then you probably remember this recipe as:
1 pck CC, 1/4c. butt, 2-1/2c. PS, 1 t. van)

In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mixes, oil and eggs; mix well. Roll into 1 in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on un-greased baking sheets. do not flatten. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks (cookies will flatten as they cool). In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth, spread on the bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

yield: 6 d0zen cookies (not likely that you will have that many when you are done because you will make yourself sick eating 1 dozen while you are frosting them)

ps Jonelle says they are real good refrigerated and I concur!~(:
