Devil's Food Cookies With Frosting

I got these at a cookie swap a few years ago and these have been among the favorite cookies in my family ever since! I believe the recipe may have come from Southern Living. I use canned frosting, zapped a few seconds in the microwave to speed up prep time. A favorite chocolate frosting, made with simisweet chocolate bits, can also be used.
