Homemade Oreos

2 eggs
2/3 cup shortening
1 pkg. (18.25 oz) devils food cake mix (dry mix)

1. Beat together eggs and shortening. Add the dry cake mix and mix well.

2. Roll into balls or use a ice cream scoop. Bake at 350℉ for about 8-12 minutes.

3. When cool frost bottom of one cookie. Then place bottom of another cookie on frosting to make a sandwich.

Use your favorite frosting (recipe follows) or ice cream for ice cream sandwiches. Fun to have red and green frosting for Christmas or other colors for other holidays.

Makes about 17 sandwich cookies

1/4 cup softened, butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 cup evaporated milk, maybe a little more (regular milk works just fine)
1/2 tsp vanilla

1. Mix butter and powdered sugar. Add milk until desired consistency. Add vanilla.

Spread in between sandwich cookies.
