Cookies
1
cup Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® strawberry cake mix
1
cup Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® devil’s food cake mix
2
pouches (1 lb 1.5 oz each) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1
cup butter, softened
2
eggs
Cream Cheese Frosting
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
3/4
cup butter, softened
1
teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4
cups powdered sugar
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 2 separate small bowls, place 1/2 cup each of the dry strawberry cake mix and dry devil’s food cake mix; set aside.
  2. In medium bowl, stir 1 pouch cookie mix, remaining 1/2 cup strawberry cake mix, 1/2 cup of the butter and 1 egg until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 20 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Roll in reserved strawberry cake mix, coating completely. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls 2 inches apart.
  3. In another medium bowl, stir second pouch of cookie mix, remaining 1/2 cup devil’s food cake mix, remaining 1/2 cup butter and remaining egg until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 20 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Roll in reserved devil’s food cake mix, coating completely. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until set. (Watch closely to prevent cookies from getting too crispy and overbaked.) Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  5. In large bowl, beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup butter and the vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until frosting is light and fluffy.
  6. For each sandwich cookie, spread 1 1/2 rounded teaspoons frosting on bottom of 1 strawberry cookie. Top with 1 devil’s food cookie, bottom side down; gently press together.
