Neighbors and Homemade Oreo Cookies

After going to Little Bishop Chronicles, I wanted to post something funny that Nathan, my 2 year old, said:  He wanted to say the prayer the other night at dinner.  My husband was helping him and here is how it went:
Eric would say the words which Nathan would repeat.  Dear Heavenly Father.  Thank thee for the food.  Thank thee for our family.  Thank thee for our neighbors....(long pause), then before repeating the last one, Nathan looked up at Eric and asked in a cute, confused little voice "What's neighbors?"  We all started to laugh.  It was hard to get through the rest of the prayer.

Here are the homemade Oreos that we made for our garage/bake sale last weekend.  They are SO YUMMY and a definite crowd pleaser!  I usually double the recipe because we like to share them with our neighbors.

Homemade Oreos
1 box devil's food cake mix (Betty Crocker brand works well)
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs

In a large bowl combine cake mix, butter, and eggs.  Chill about 10 minutes.  Roll into small balls and place on baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.  Cool and frost with cream cheese frosting: (this makes enough for a double batch)

1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

Beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla together.  Add the powdered sugar and mix.  If the frosting is too thick, add a little milk (1 tsp at a time) until it is thick and spreadable.  Spread filling on top of cookie, and then top with another cookie.
