Homemade Oreo Cookies

My son and I share a birthday, along with Bridget's son. It is definitely a busy day!  

I picked up some Sonic meals and ate lunch with him in the cafeteria.  Then me and my two girls (ages 3 and 1) rushed to Wal-mart to pick up some M&M's to make some cookies to take to his class at the end of the day.  (The schools here are very picky about birthday treats.  You are not allowed to bring anything with frosting.  However, they allowed homemade M&M cookies.) They were a big hit!  I should have made more because the kids kept asking for seconds.  :)

  I asked my son what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday celebration with the family.  He didn't want a cake, but homemade Oreo cookies with Oreo ice cream.  So that's what he got!  And they were so good!  My sister-in-law gave me this recipe years ago and they are yummy and easy!

Homemade Oreo Cookies

1 Devils  Cake Mix
1 Cup Shortening
2 Eggs

Beat together until well mixed.  make into small balls and put on cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not over bake.

1 - 8 ounce package of Cream Cheese
1/2 cup Shortening
Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla 

Mix together Cream Cheese and Shortening until smooth.  Add powdered sugar until you reach a spreading consistency.  Put in between 2 cooled cookies.  Enjoy!

This looks delicious! I'm pinning this, and I plan on trying them soon (it may ruin my husband's "diet," but he doesn't need to be on one anyway :).

Wow! Just reading the headline made my mouth water, then when I saw the photo - YUM!! Definitely something I have to try. And because I live in Sweden, this definitely sounds like an American treat to me. Even more fun. :-)
