These cookies have always been a hit when I make them at home, or when I bring them somewhere, so I thought I would share the recipe with anyone who actually reads this :D
1 package of devils food cake mix
2/3 cup of shortening
8oz package of cream cheese
1 cube of butter (or 1/2 cup margin)
1lb powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
Mix together the ingredients for cookies. Roll into quarter sized balls and bake at 350 on a greased cookie cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes (depending on the size) until the cookies have flattened out most of the way. Allow cookies to cool, then frost.
