Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cake mix of your choice
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs, beaten
Place walnut-sized balls of dough onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with Pam (or whatever you prefer). Bake cookies for 8 - 10 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, move to a cooling rack until completely cool. Spread frosting onto the backside of a cookie and top it with another.
Typically makes about 45 cookies = 22 cookie sandwiches, plus a bonus cookie to eat as you frost. :)
Try these AMAZING combinations!!!

My coworker made the lemon cookies w/vanilla frosting and they were AWESOME!
