2 Pkgs Devils Food Cake Mix (if you don't have that any moist chocolate cake mix will do)
1 cup crisco (translation for aussies.. a kind of vegtable oil)
4 Beaten Eggs
8 0z Cream Cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp Vanilla
Heat oven to 350 F.
Combine all the cookie ingredients in a bowl.
Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Take a small piece of the dough and roll it into a ball. It should be the size of a dime - or $1.00 Aussie dollar.
Do a test batch placing 1 or two balls on the tray. Cook for approximately 10 minutes. Dough should flatten out and deflat upon removing from teh oven as well. Use this time to exactly measure how long your oven requires to cook these cookies.
Place balls on tray and space approximately 2-3 inches apart.
Remove from oven once cooked and allow them to sit and cool before removing from the tray.
Allow cookies to completely cool before adding filling.
Soften cream cheese and butter. With an electric mixer whip the cream and butter together, add in Vanilla essence, slowly add the powdered sugar.
Place in fridge while you wait for your cokoies to cook and cool.
To Fill: Take 2 evenly sized cookies, gently spread your preferred amount of filling on one side, and press the top cookie.
I really like ALOT of cream cheese filling in my cookies but feel free to add more or less to your taste. Cookies will soften with the filling in them giving them moisture.
