Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

I know earlier this week I promised a recipe for THE BEST homemade bread and it is still coming {one of these days}, but when I set out to bake something today I was more in the mood for cookies than bread.  It's my prerogative to change my mind, right?  So today instead of whole wheat bread, I bring you . . .

Chocolate sandwich Cookies!!  They only take a few simple ingredients and boy, are they a crowd-pleaser.  I just whipped up a batch of chocolate cake-mix cookies and used vanilla frosting for the filling.  I set out to create something like a homemade Oreo, but these are nothing like Oreos.  They are soft and chewy and sooo much more delicious.

Here's the recipe:


Chocolate Sandwich Cookies


1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 C. oil
2 lg. eggs
1 can vanilla frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine the chocolate cake mix powder {just the powder -- don't add the ingredients the cake calls for}, oil and eggs until blended.  This will form a thick cookie dough rather than a thinner cake batter.  Form into 1-1/4 inch balls and place 2-3 inches apart on a baking sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and let them sit on the hot pan for another 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.  {This is what helps them to have that soft, chewy texture. If you like a crunchier cookie just bake them longer.}

Once the cookies are cool, place a dollop of frosting between two cookies, sandwich them together, and enjoy!  This recipe makes about 15 sandwich cookies.

I like them better on the second day {if they last that long} after they've had a chance to set up a little.  I'm not sure why it makes such a difference, but it does!  Surprise your family with a batch of these you just might win the Mother-of-the-Year award.


Have a great day, friends!  I hope you'll come back tomorrow for a simple ruffled apron project.
