Whoopie Pies - Soft Sandwhich Cookie

READY IN: 34mins
Recipe by MrsScarlettOhara

Cake-like choc. cookies with a creamy filling. I've used another recipe a couple of times and have changed it a little to make it better. These cookies are so yummy! 2 cookies per person is plenty...very filling:-) Optional: Try this with one cookie first to see if you like it. Freeze a whoopie pie. Melt some dipping chocolate. Coat entire cookie quickly, place on parchment paper then place in fridge or freezer until it sets....a yummy alternative.

I just finished making these and they are delicious! My husband devoured 2 before I could fend him off. I grew up on the Northern East Coast and am now living in the Midwest and have been missing Whoopie Pies for the last 7 years. The filling is very rich, but goes so nicely with the cakes. The only issue I had was that I found that I had to cook my cakes a little longer to get the right level of firmness (8-9 minutes). Wonderful recipe, thank you!
