Ever heard of a Whoopie Pie? Its a funny name and a delicious sandwich cookie that I first learned about last year when our family was visiting a local bakery where they had a display of pumpkin Whoopie Pies. They looked incredibly delicious, unfortunately, I don’t much care for pumpkin flavor so I decided I would make my own.
Well, it so happens I get the Pillsbury e-newsletter and there they were, Whoopie Pies! So I just had to try the recipe with a few modifications of my own.
- 1 box of Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 box (4-serving size) chocolate instant pudding
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 – 7oz jar of marshmallow cream
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tsps vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cookie ingredients and beat at a medium speed for 2 minutes. Then, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lightly coat with cooking spray.
Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, place large dollops of the cookie mix about 2 inches apart and bake for 13 minutes.
While the cookies are baking, combine all of the filling ingredients and whip until light and fluffy.
