1/1 Photo of Vanilla Sandwich Cookies
These cookies don't have many ingredients, are easy to make, and taste pretty good. This was my attempt at a copycat of an Oreo Cakester, but it's not the same. It's not really like a whoopie pie, either. Unlike either of those, with these, you can really only eat one (well, I can), because they're pretty dense. My picture is with French Vanilla cake mix. If you try these with butter-flavored shortening for the cookie part, let me know how it turns out - or any other substitutions (cake mixes, extract flavors...). If you make these the day before (or even 2 days before) and refrigerate them, the cookie part becomes a bit softer. Also, try my Chocolate Sandwich Cookies!
