Valentine Oreo Cookies

2 boxes strawberry flavored cake mix
1 cup vegetable oil (or 1 1/2 cups shortening)
4 eggs

Combine ingredients in mixing bowl til well blended. Form dough into a 1-1 1/2" balls. To shape into a heart I took a butter knife and sliced into one side of the ball just a little bit to make the top of the heart. I then took the dough that is on each side of the knife and pulled away from the knife, creating space between the slit I made with the knife. I then squeezed the dough together on the opposite end from the slit, creating the bottom point of the heart. I did have to flatten the top (face) of the heart just a bit too. Be creative and make a heart how you can.
Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 min. Til the top starts to crack and lose it's gloss.
Let the cookie cool then make a sandwich with the filling...

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 TB vanilla
2 3/4 cups powdered sugar

*I found this recipe on pinterest. I was worried the strawberry cookie was going to be too sweet, but the husband gave them 2 thumbs! Definitely a fun new Valentine treat we will be doing again!

Did you just blend the ingredients for the filling?

Yes, Karen. Combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla then add powder sugar a cup at a time.
