Homemade Oreos a.k.a. Whoopie Pies

Every small-town Mormon cookbook I have has this recipe (or one like it) at least's one of those "staples" and I love it!

Also good with a Red Velvet or Spice Cake Mix


1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, softened

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

2. Blend the cookie ingredients together with a pastry blender until mixed.

3. Roll in balls about the size of a quarter and place on ungreased baking sheets. Make an even number of balls.

4. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cookies stand on cookie sheet for 5-6 minutes before removing them to cooling rack. After cookies have cooled, put Cream Cheese Frosting (beat together the above frosting ingredients) between two cookies, putting bottom sides together.

Store in airtight container in the fridge
