1 box Devils Food cake mix
3/4 cup shortening
Mix these ingredients well. It will be thick! Roll into little balls....or big if you want bigger cookies. Bake in 350 deg oven for 8-10 min. I only do 8 minutes because you get a softer cookie that way. Let cool completely before frosting.
1lb box of powdered sugar
1 cup of butter (yes that is 2 whole sticks!....not a fat free cookie :) )
1 8oz block of cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
Mix butter and cream cheese together first with an electric mixer. Then add Powdered sugar. Add vanilla last.
~~I chill the frosting first before spreading onto cookies. The room temp frosting oozes out too much and makes quite a mess. After frosting all the cookies, I would also store them in the fridge.....you will see why if you try to eat one that is at room temp!~~ ENJOY!
