Chocolate Stuffed Christmas Cookies

Devil's Food Chocolate Cake Mix

2 eggs

2/3 c. canola or vegetable oil

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

3/4 c. powdered sugar

1/2 c. chopped pecans

1/2 c. chocolate chips

food coloring {optional}

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2.  In a bowl mix together the cake mix, eggs and oil until combined.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3.  Using a medium sized cookie scoop, scoop out the cookie dough onto the baking sheet filling the cookie sheet with 20 cookies.  Spray the bottom of a glass with cooking spray and gently press on the cookies to flatten them.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Allow to cool.

4.  While baking in a bowl combine the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, pecans and chocolate chips.  Optional add red or green food coloring.

5.  When the cookies have cooled spread the cream cheese filling on the bottom of one cookie, topping it with another.  This recipe will make 10 stuffed cookies, or 20 if you use a smaller cookie scoop.

6.  Keep refrigerated.  Or freeze among wax paper in a tightly sealed container for up to 1 month.
