Crimson Tide beat LSU Whoppie Pies AKA Red Velvet Whoppie Pies

I had to make these for this weekend.  Everything has to be crimson this week to beat those LSU Tigers.  These are super easy to make and if you don't want red pies you can use an different cake mix. This is actually combining two recipes.  I made these before but used a filling that had marshmallow cream in it.  I didn't have any marshmallow cream so I used a different filling this time.
The actual pies have only four ingredients.  Cake mix, oil, water and eggs.
Add 2 Tablespoons of water to the cake mix.
1/2 cup of oil
2 eggs
Mix the batter up well.  This batter is thicker than if you were making a cake.
Use an ice cream scoop of a cookie scoop to scoop the batter.  I probably should use a smaller scoop next time.  By using the scoop they will all be about the same size. Use parchment in your pans.
Here's one pan of them. Put them in a preheated 325 oven.  Bake for about 13 minutes.  The tops won't be too set.  You can leave them in another minute or two.
Take them out of the oven and let them set for about 5 minutes.  This will help them set some.
Then let cool completely on a wire rack or off the cookie sheet.
Now for the filling.  Powdered sugar, butter, cream cheese and vanilla
Cream the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Both should be room temperature.
They are mixed well.
Add about 4 cups of powdered sugar one cup at a time.
This is 2 cups mixed.
All four cups mixed.  Then add about 1 teaspoon of vanilla.  It is probably best if you use clear vanilla so it will not turn the filling a little dark.
The filling is ready to use.
Now pick out two cookies that are about the same size and shape.
Spread filling on one of them.
Nice and covered.
Put the top on.
The finished pies.
