       Title: OREO COOKIES
  Categories: Desserts
       Yield: 48 servings
  
      18 oz PKG Devil’s Food Cake Mix
       2    Eggs
       2 tb Water
       2 tb Cooking Oil
     1/2 c  Bitter Cocoa Powder
       1    Envelope Unflavored Gelatin
     1/4 c  Cold Water
       1 c  Crisco
       1 ts Vanilla
       1 lb Plus 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  
   Blend all COOKIE DOUGH ingredients together until you
   can shape the dough into a smooth ball.  Let it stand
   20 minutes, loosely covered.  Form dough into
   marble-sized balls.  Place 2 inches apart on greased
   cookie sheet. Flatten each with smooth bottom of a
   drinking glass greased once and dipped into Nestles'
   Quick Powder. (Or use sweetened chocolate drink
   powder).  Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.  Remove
   cookies at once from baking sheet, to paper toweling
   and at once, flatten each cookie with back of pancake
   turner.  Let cool 20 minutes.  Fill with COOKIE
   FILLING mixture. (Cookie Filling)
   Soften gelatin in cold water.  Place in heatproof cup
   in pan of hot water till gelatin is transparent.
    Meanwhile beat Crisco till fluffy, adding vanilla and
   sugar a little at a time.  Beat in Gelatin mixture
   when it is completely cooled, but not yet “set” or
   firm.  This is used to give the filling stability - as
   well as protein!  When cooled, shape filling into 1
   inch balls.  Place between the two bottom sides of the
   cooled cookies, pressing gently till filling has
   spread to edge of cookies and rounded-out like the
   originals. This is suppose to be a great imitation
   version of the original Nabisco Oreos.
