       Title: Oreo Cookies
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 48 servings
  
       1 pk Devil’s food cake mix; 18 oz
       2    Eggs
       2 tb Water
       2 tb Cooking oil
            For dipping
     1/2 c  Bitter cocoa powder or
            Nestles quik)
            For filling
       1    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 drinking glass greased once and
   dipped into the cocoa 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 til gelatin is transparent. Meanwhile beat Crisco till
   fluffy, adding vanilla and sugar gradually. 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 supposed to be a great imitation version of the
   original Nabisco Oreos.
