  1. we made the cookies from this recipe and filled them with a combination of marshmallow fluff, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar (filling from a diff cookie.) they tasted just like cakesters!! <br/><br/><br/>we actually made a vanilla version of these.. added a little extra flour and left out cocoa powder. we amazing!!
  2. Made up only 1/2 recipe. I used a small ice cream scoop to make the cookies and they really turned out uniform to be matched later with the filling I cooked them 6 min. in my convection oven and they were perfect. They were especially good to me since they are not too sweet. Next time I will make up the full recipe and change the filling to 1/2 crisco/1/2 butter & a touch of vanilla. The children love them, not only because they are good, but they are individually packaged like a special treat. .
  3. This recipe is a disaster. Literally so messy, doesn't shape, and tastes bad
  4. These really weren't any good. The recipe calls for an entire cup of oil, making this cookie extremely heavy. The batter was so thick, but not thick enough to be a dough, so trying to scoop it out was a nightmare... The frosting was runny, and I would leave out the evaporated milk, to be honest. I had to throw it out and I used another recipe, basically using the same stuff, but no milk. Instead, I used 2 cups of powdered sugar, one stick of butter, and a teaspoon of vanilla. it really tasted so much better. With a fluffier, more light and less oily cookie cake, it would have been so much more enjoyable. I would say that these are nothing like the oreo cakesters they are compared to. I feel bad because these were supposed to be for my family on the 4th of July and I can't give this to them because they are pretty gross.
  5. I made these after a long search for my double stuff cakesters with no luck! My kids loved them and I loved that i made them from simple ingredients with no concern of tree nut trace (8 yr old daughter is allergic to tree nuts). I think I will cut the Crisco to half and use real butter for the other next time and maybe a drop of real vanilla. The cookie/cake alone is amazing too. I used my cupcake tin and placed a large dollop of the batter into each cupcake space for half the batter and the other half I dropped spoonfuls into my cookie molds. I like the cupcake tin the best. Very uniform and they don't spread at all. I suggest all that come across this recipe should definitely make these. They would be great for bake sales and for holiday gifts too since you can add food coloring to the filling! Enjoy!
