So! To begin! In a large bowl, mix TWO boxes of devil's food cake mix, 4 eggs, and 2/3 cup of oil. As you can see, I don't use oil, I use melted butter. Again, up to you.
Mix on low, then medium until thoroughly blended.
The batter will be THICK.
Either roll into one inch balls, or cheat like I do and use a cookie scoop!
Flatten with something...I used a measuring cup.
Add 4 cups of SIFTED powdered sugar. Sifting removes lumps. If you don't have a sifter, or don't want to sift, that's your choice. :-)
Should have consistency of frosting...cause that's basically what it is...cream cheese frosting...we are just going to use it as filling....
place about this much filling on the bottom of one cookie...you may want to put more, I had left over filling, but what I used was a good ratio, in MY opinion, of cookie-to-filling.so, yes, about so much....
Place second cookie on top and while pressing down, spin the cookies a bit...will help spread filling.
Feed to hungry beasts of all ages.....
Here is the finished product!
...don't worry, the recipe made more than this - about 20 or 30 sandwiches (so 40-60 cookies, sorry, didn't count)
The original recipe called for coloring the filling red and green...looked very pretty, but I try not to use artificial colors like that when I have the choice....once again, up to you!
