"OREO" cookies - from Food Network magazine!

1 1/3 c. cocoa powder
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 sticks butter, softened
2 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 c. crisco shortening
 3 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Prepare the dough by combining the dough ingredients.  Divide the dough into 2 pieces.  Take one piece of the dough and roll out to 1/4" thick.  Repeat with the other piece of dough.  Place on cookie sheets and refrigerate at least 1 hour.  Using a round cookie cutter cut the dough into circles.  Place them on baking sheets and chill for 20 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 325.  Bake until they are set and slighty darker around the edges.  About 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, prepare the filling.  Using a mixer cream the butter and shortening until fluffy.  Beat in the sugar and vanilla.  Make your Oreos!
