Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies

Seriously, the stickiest dough I have ever worked with.

Rolled into balls & then, with the tips of the fingers, lightly press down.

But, looks yummy, right? Next step - filling

Easy & tastes a bit like frosting. Why? Powdered Sugar, Cream Cheese & Butter.

Sandwich together and you have cookie heaven - Hubby could not stop eating. Want to make festive? Add Peppermint Extract to filling and/or roll in red / green sprinkles. Your friends will love them.

For the Cookies:

2 boxes Devils Food Cake Mix

4 Eggs

2/3 cup Vegetable Oil

For the Filling:

1 8oz package Cream Cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)

4 cups Powdered Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, combine Cake Mix, Eggs & Veg Oil. The batter is really stiff. Pinch off pieces of batter & roll into 1 inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on baking sheet & flatten slightly with tips of fingers.

3. Bake 8-10 minutes & remove to a wire rack.

4. While cookies are cooling, combine the Cream Cheese & Butter until smooth & blended together.

5. Gradually add the Powdered Sugar & Vanilla Extract. Mix until the icing is smooth. **You could add food coloring here for holiday themed cookies)

6. Once you have "sandwiched" the cookies, store in the fridge in an airtight container.
