Snacktime: "Oreo" Dinos

October 6, 2010
These scrumptious cookies are so good that no matter how many you make they never make it to the neighbors house.

This is arguably my new favorite roll-out cookie recipe.

 Impossibly simple and undeniably delicious! 

These were a special treat for my son's preschool class. They were having a lesson on dinosaurs. I think I'll make more of these for Halloween! Bat cookies!

This is my own spin on the classic "cakie" (cake mix cookie) recipe.  I prefer to use devil's food cake mix because I'm a chocoholic, but you can use any kind of cake mix you love.

1 box cake mix
1/2 cup shortening
3 eggs
cream cheese frosting

1. Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl and cut in shortening and eggs using a pastry blender.
2. Use your hands to push dough into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 min.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
4. Roll dough onto a floured surface and cut with your favorite cookie cutters. (don't forget to make 2 of each shape so you can make it into a sandwich.)
5. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes.
6. Cool 5 minutes on pans before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.

7. Frost cookie with cream cheese frosting and add another matching cookie of top for a cute and delectable sandwich. 
8. Enjoy! Make sure you save some for your hubby and kids.

These cookies will stay soft for days. So you can make a double batch and have some tomorrow too!
