Homemade Oreos

We had some new neighbors move in so I took that as an excuse to bake and welcome them with cookies! I love homemade oreos and have ever since I was little so I decided to bake some. These cookies also have a special meaning to them. Every year at Christmas my mom's neighbor would bring a plate of assorted cookies to our house and it was a fight to get one of the 4 oreos. I would've eaten all of them had my mom let me. I looked forward to them every year. A gal that I work with brought some in one day and I had to have the recipe. Luckily, Debbie likes me and gave the recipe to me! They are super easy to make and so yummy. Enjoy!

2 boxes of chocolate cake mix
1 1/2 cups Crisco
4 eggs
8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar (reg. bag)

Mix the cake mix, Crisco and eggs. Roll into balls and bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees on 2nd to top rack. Mix the remaining ingredients to make the frosting. Use as much powdered sugar to get make it as thick or thin as you want. Let the cookies cool, then frost.
