First off, sorry for the lag in posts…I was concentrating on getting all of our family’s Christmas gifts in the mail. Now that they’re sent off, things should be going somewhat back to normal!
I’ve been thinking about Whoopie Pies for several days now, but I always come up with something else to make when I get into a baking mood. I really wasn’t planning on making them today either. I started out making cookies from a packet of cookie mix that I got from Sarah. After they came out of the oven, inspiration struck! 🙂
Here’s what I did:
I made the cookies according to the package and while they were cooling I mixed up the filling.
I put 1/4 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, and a dash of vanilla in a mixing bowl, then I added 1/2 cup of Marshmallow Fluff. The next step is to mix it with a hand mixer, but I would HIGHLY recommend that you move to an isolated corner of the kitchen counter where you don’t mind if everything gets covered in powdered sugar before you start that next step!
Once everything is moved away from the mixing bowl, go ahead and turn on the mixer. Mix until everything is blended evenly….it shouldn’t take more than a minute or so.
Now grab a table knife, a smear a tablespoon’s worth of filling on the bottom side of a cookie, then stick another cookie on top of it. You should have what resembles a little cookie sandwich. TA-DA, that’s a whoopie pie, folks!
After you get all of your pies assembled, take a small spoon and scrape the bowl. After you get all the leftover filling on the spoon, go ahead and put it in your mouth….that’s my absolute FAVORITE part of the recipe and I have no problem admitting that I made more filling than necessary in order for that last step to happen!
