Homemade Oreo Cookies

So what is better then delicious chocolate cookies? Delicious chocolate cookies with vanilla Cream filling. Mmmmm... dangerously good. No really... like I might have a heart-attack any minute. You should not have more then one... or two in one sitting. They freeze really well. :) And the taste really good... every day.

Lyd's Tip: I used the old zip-lock bag piping technique to get the icing on in a good way. The kids had a lot of fun helping. Have your kids flip the cooled cookies over for you, and give them the job of putting them together. They have fun being involved in the yummy action. :)

I used Debra's Double-Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I think it is just a little better, but I'll post this other one just in case you are interested.

Cookie Recipe
1 package devil's food cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 - cup oil
(or butter flavored shortening) Heat oven to 350 degrees. Add oil and eggs to cake mix and blend together. Roll dough into balls (a little larger than a quarter). Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on sheet (until warm). Remove cookies from sheet and place on cooling rack.To assemble the cookies, in a pastry bag with a 1/2 inch, round tip (you can always use a zip lock bag with a round tip or just use a butter knife)add about a tablespoon of filling into the center of one cookie. Place another cookie similar in size on top of the filling. Lightly press, to work the filling evenly to the outsides of the cookie. Continue this process until all the cookies have been sandwiched with cream.

Vanilla Cream Filling Recipe:
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) room-temperature, unsalted butter
1/4 - cup vegetable shortening
2 - 3 - cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 - teaspoons vanilla extract

Cream butter and shortening together. Add add vanilla extract and confectioner's sugar slowly until you reach your desired consistency.
