Homemade Oreos

This is my very own concoction. I think it turned out pretty well!

Homemade Oreo Cookies

1 box Chocolate Cake Mix (I used a 25 cent box of Wal-Mart's)
4 Tbls. melted shortening
1/4 cup water
3 Tbls. flour
2 Tbls. Sugar

Mix all the ingredients together with a electric mixer. Divide into three equal sections. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 thickness. Cut into circles with a lid to a spice container.

I found that using an off-set spatula will help you lift them off of the counter easier.

Bake circles on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet for 8 minutes. Allow to cool on sheets for a couple of minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbls. milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Beat butter and shortening together until smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Gradually beat in milk and vanilla. Place into a quart sized plastic bag with the tip cut off. Pipe about 1-2 teaspoons on one of the chocolate wafers. Top with another wafer.
