Homemade Oreo Cookies

M was at a friends' house the other day and her mom made these delicious cookies and sent some home with her. I've been craving them for days. I've been so good this week, and have a ton of points left, so I decided to make them. They are so YUMMY!!

Oreo Cookies:
2 chocolate fudge cake mixes
1 c. shortening
4 eggs

Mix ingredients together. The dough is very dry. Roll into small balls and put on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, and then move to cooling rack. When cool, fill with filling.

1 - 8oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter
4 c. powdered sugar
food coloring if desired

The kids loved them, but I'm not sure if they like licking the mixers more or eating the cookies. These are so yummy and so easy. Sadly, I've already eaten 2. Oh well, life goes on and we have to enjoy it. Right?

Wow, those could not exist at my house. I'm so envious of all of you who have so much self control. 2 is nothing.
