I’m going to keep this simple. These are good. Real good. Easy and oh-so-tasty. And they’re portable too, so fun to share.
They kinda remind me of the classic cheesecake brownie, very rich and dense with a cream cheese contrast, but they’re a lot cuter, don’t you agree? Good stuff.
Homemade Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
Yields 1 dozen sandwiches (Calorie estimate: 225/sandwich)
1 (18.25 ounce) box devil’s food cake mix
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
cream cheese frosting (any old recipe will do, but if you need one try this)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Blend the above ingredients together with a pastry blender until mixed.
Roll in balls about the size of a quarter and place on ungreased baking sheets. Make an even number of balls.
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 between two cookies, putting bottom sides together.
