Zoe's Homemade Oreos

Zoe made these YUMMY cookies for New Years Eve and they were a big hit. She had a few people ask for the recipe, so here it is..... along with a few pictures.
This is a "remove your rings" kind of recipe. The dough is a little dry, so just get in there!
Usually we just roll the dough into little balls, this time we wanted to see how it worked with cookie cutters, so Zoe rolled it out.
Just out of the oven. They are really yummy right now, but try and wait until you frost them. It's worth it!
Little boy approved! (even with a heart)
Here you go:
Zoe's Homemade Oreos
2 boxes of Devils Food Chocolate cake mix
3/4 c. oil
4 eggs

Mix all together. (we use our hands :)
Roll into walnut sized balls ***or roll out, and use cookie cutters
Bake at 350* for 8 minutes.

When cool, frost cookies and stick them together.

8 oz. cream cheese
2 2/3 c. powdered sugar

Beat together until smooth.
***When you use cookie cutters, the cookies turn out crispy... more like a real Oreo. We like them both ways!
