Mom’s Whoopie Pies Recipe


Mom’s Whoopie Pies

It wasn’t until 2009 that I had my first Whoopie Pie.  I was looking through one of my many cookbooks, and I found the recipe for Whoopie Pie.  I made it and couldn’t believe how easy it was, and the only thing I had to buy was the marshmallow crème.  Well, I couldn’t find that recipe, but I have another, this recipe was in AARP The Magazine and it’s from Joanne Weir, so here goes.

Mom’s Whoopie Pies Recipe

Mom’s Whoopie Pies

1 cup sugar

1 egg

½ cup butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

½ cup cocoa, sifted

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

2 cups flour

1 cup buttermilk

Filling:   ¾ cup butter, softened

1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted

1 ½ cups prepared marshmallow crème

2 tsp. vanilla

¼ tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375 F.  With an electric mixer, bear sugar, egg, butter and vanilla until light and creamy.  In another bowl, mix the cocoa, baking soda, salt and flour; then blend with buttermilk into the creamed mixture.

Drop batter by the heaping tablespoon onto greased baking sheets and bake 7 to 9 minutes.  Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire rack.           Makes 30 mini-cakes.

To make filling, mix together all ingredients well.

To assemble, sandwich a heaping tablespoon of cream between two cakes, dividing cream evenly between the 15 whoopie pies.
