Homemade Sandwich Cookies

I took these to a picnic over the weekend and they were a huge hit!  Everyone loved them and said they taste a lot like Oreos.  Of course, I handed out the recipe to everybody it seemed.  These are super easy to make and would be great for a bake sale too!

2 boxes devil’s food cake mix**

2 sticks of margarine, softened

2 eggs

1 can store-bought white or vanilla icing

1/2 cup (approximate) confectioner’s sugar

Combine cake mix, eggs, and butter in a bowl.  You’ll end up mashing it together with your hands to get it all mixed up into a fairly stiff cookie dough.  Form dough into balls using a measuring teaspoon.  Place on cookie sheet (I like to line mine with parchment paper) and bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool on pan for a few minutes before placing on a cooling rack to cool completely.  

Combine icing and confectioner’s sugar and beat with electric mixer until fairly stiff.  Spread icing on bottom of one cookie and top with another cookie.  I like to just turn half of my cookies top-side down and squirt the icing on them using a pastry bag.  It really cuts the time and potential for mess.

This recipe makes about 3 dozen sandwiches.

**I like devil’s food cake mix the best but you can use any flavor you want.  Strawberry is particularly good and so is lemon.  You could always choose a different flavor icing to complement your cookie flavor.
