Quick Chocolate Sandwich Cookies Recipe

Quick Chocolate Sandwich Cookies Recipe

These cookies freeze well, so it's easy to keep some on hand for last-minute munching. In summer, I often make them larger to use for ice cream sandwiches.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages devil's food cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mixes, oil and eggs until well blended. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Do not flatten.
  • 2. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks (cookies will flatten as they cool).
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Beat in sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread or pipe filling on the bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: about 6 dozen.
