Homemade Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
Devils food cake mix or other cake mix
2/3 Cup shortening
Red or White frosting
Mix cake mix, eggs and shortening together in a mixing bowl. Form into balls and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. No longer than 8 minutes so they will be soft. Let cool.
For Valentine's Day, I cut the baked cookies out with a heart shaped cookie cutter. Frosted the middle and topped with another heart shaped cookie to make a sandwich.
For other holidays cut out with a different shaped cookie cutter.
I saved the extra cookie crumbs in a bag for the freezer. Later I will add them to brownie dough or for a topping for ice cream.
