Homemade Oreo Cookies

This is my most asked for recipe- by far.

1 Box Devil's Food Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/2 c. Shortening

Mix eggs and the cake mix then add the shortening. Roll into very small balls. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

Once cookies are cooled match up into pairs of equal size and frost.

1 8-ounce Package Cream Cheese softened
1/4 c. Butter
4 1/2 c. Powdered Sugar

*I added food coloring for Halloween and rolled the edges in orange sugar for more impact
