Original recipe makes 2 dozen Change Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Blend the above ingredients together with a pastry blender until mixed.
  3. Roll in balls about the size of a quarter and place on ungreased baking sheets. Make an even number of balls.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cookies stand on cookie sheet for 5-6 minutes before removing them to cooling rack. After cookies have cooled, put Cream Cheese Frosting (see recipe or use one can of pre-made frosting) between two cookies, putting bottom sides together.
  5. NOTE: Adding chopped pecans to the cookies without making them into sandwiches is also very good. Spice cake mix can be used in place of Devil's food.

Great recipe! Used 1 box cake mix, 1 stick butter and 2 eggs with electric mixer. How easy is that? 1 level tablespoon for each cookie, 10 min. Each one perfect and the same size. Yummy!

I didn't quite love these. I think they were just way too sweet and I tend to like things sweet. If you do make them, I filled a large plastic bag with the frosting and then turned over half of them and lined them up. I then piped in a large glob of frosting on each and then used the remaining cookies to top them. I'm sure it saved a ton of time to do it this way and piping the icing was way faster than if I would have tried to scoop it in.

I have made these cookies twice, once with devils food cake and once with spice cake. Both were very yummy but my family and friends liked the ones made with spice cake and cream cheese frosting better. I will definatly be making them again!

I have been making these cookies for years now and always receive requests for the recipe. Not only are they so easy to make, they are also so easy to travel with-- especially when frozen first. In the summer time we will use our favorite flavors of ice cream in lieu of the frosting!

Fabulous cookies. Everywhere we take these cookies they are the first to disappear. The cookies don't need very much icing between them to sweeten them up. These are so easy to make that my oldest daughter (age 10) was able to make them herself for a bake sale fundraiser. I would guess that they would freeze well, but they never last that long at our house even when I double the recipe. Also, as a time saver I use prepared cream cheese icing. One container of icing is sufficient for a double batch of cookies. Thanks so much to John for the best cookie recipe ever!! PS These cookies are even better than oreos.

I took these cookies to our annual "Cookie Day Competition" at work and won the grand prize. It makes a HUGE batch of cookies. Don't skimp on the frosting. Store them in the fridge so the icing stays firm & the cookies stay cold, chewy & wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Excellent & different. I used the cream cheese recipe called for in the cookie recipe and was delighted. I only made about half the cookie batter and froze the rest. It makes a very large batch- good for bake sales!

This recipe is very good. My family started eating the cookies before they were put together with the filling. I used a different filling. I am looking forward to trying this recipe with other flavors of cake mix and fillings. Oh by the way, I mixed mine with a hand mixer and they turned out great and was easier than the pastry blender.
