  • Form dough into a smooth 12-inch log on wax paper or parchment making sure it is even in thickness end to end. Wrap in wax paper; seal in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets. Unwrap dough log and set on wax paper. Using a sharp knife, cut into 48 slices about 1/4- inch thick. Place on cool baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

  • Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in center of oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

  • Spread frosting on half the cookies. Top each frosted cookie with another cookie. Gently press together.

Tip:

For best results, bake one baking sheet at a time. If baking two sheets together, rotate pans halfway through baking.

This was pretty good. Tasted exactly like the cake. But if someone tells you to make a clean non-mess cookie this is NOT the cookie for you. This is definitely more of a sloppy cake than a cookie. But delicious if you love cake Read More

Wow! So good! Instead of slicing I rolled them into patties which was a lot easier. My family loves them! Read More

I just finished this recipe and it came out great! I made 3 different types of cookies: Red Velvet Blue Velvet and Orange Cremé. This recipe works with any type of Duncan Hines cake mix. Read More

This turned out perfectly! Only two things I did differently was #1: I rolled the batter into 1" balls I got 41.. so to even things up I HAD to eat the extra one!??#2: I used a favorite homemade cream cheese frosting...tip..don't overbake the batter..they should be pretty soft in the center but somewhat firm around the edge..

I'm disappointed in the outcome. They taste ok but the cookies hardened within an hour of baking them and they look way different from the ones in the picture. I will be finishing them but not remaking this recipe Read More

Based on other comments, I used 2 large eggs, refrigerated the dough for an hour but rolled it into 1 inch balls and patted them into patties, baked them 7-8 minutes (in an oven that gets too hot), and used my mom's cream cheese icing for the filling. I was kind of disappointed in the cookies. They were flat and dry and didn't taste like much. They were ok as a vehicle for icing, but I wouldn't make them again. It's a very effortful recipe and it doesn't pay off well enough. Read More
