1 package Devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup shortening
1 tablespoon water
40 thin mints/grasshopper cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together the cake mix, shortening, eggs, and water until fully combined. Form the dough into one inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place them on an ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart from each other.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set. Once you pull them out of the oven, immediately put a thin mint on each cookie. Let cool for one minute on the sheet and then remove to a flat surface to cool.
