this is a delicious take on a couple recipes I found and altered from allrecipes.com
The cookies are super soft, spice cake cookies sandwiching a chai-spiced, cream-cheese icing. Please let me know if you make these and how they turned out.

1 (18.25 ounce) package spice cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.
In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix, eggs and oil. Mix until well blended. Roll dough into 2 inch balls, and place them onto the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten the balls slightly with the back of a spoon.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
To make the filling, beat the cream cheese, confectioner' sugar and all spices together until smooth. Spread between two cooled cookies.

***I would reccommend smaller cookies, because these are quite rich (coming from a desert LOVER). Be sure to shorten your cooking time accordingly.
also, it doesn't look like a lot of icing, but it will be enough for the 16-18 sandwiches you make.

YUM!  These sound delicious, I think I'll get the ingredients next time I go to the store!

I made these last night, so I thought I'd put in my two cents about them. They were yummy!

1. I didn't have cardamom, so I was going to buy some, but boy is it expensive! So instead I got a bottle of chai spices (which was much cheaper), and added about 4 tsp of it to the icing instead of using the mixture of spices suggested in the recipe.
2. The whole recipe made 9 cookies that were about 3.5 inches big. Each one was enough to feed a third world country for about two months. I had some friends over that generally scarf down all kinds of food, but they could barely finish one. So 9 cookies is definitely enough.  Smiley

Overall, they were incredibly delicious! Everyone who tried them loved them, and I would definitely make these cookies again. I wish I had some pictures to show you, but they got eaten up so quick I didn't have time!  Roll Eyes
