A very easy, fun spin off the original cake! If desired, lightly dust with confectioners' sugar.

Don't substitute oil!! Unless you're sure you know the right proportions. This rating is only for the batch I tried to make by substituting oil as some of the previous reviewers did. Since they didn't say otherwise, I assumed a one-to-one substitution and completely wasted a whole box of cake mix. Very disappointed. I went with the oil b/c it was more affordable, If you're going to suggest substitutions, please be specific!!

Very good, RICH recipe. The cookies are not too sweet, so when filled with the caramel frosting you get a great flavor. The cookies will be puffy when first removed from the oven, but will flatten as they cool.

These Came Out great, and my little sister loved them! I used devils food and chocolate frosting per her tastes. I made them very big, so next time I will roll out the dough and make mini cookie sandwiches. I will also try lemon cake with lemon icing
