This is going to be a long review but worth reading. This recipe was printed on the Geting Started materials many years ago and I was sso sad when I lost it without ever trying it. So I was thrilled to find it here. I made my batter as stated except that I used skim as it was all that I had. The result is much more like a very thick cake batter than a cookie dough making it a little difficult to work with. I made this in three different batches each a bit differently. From this I would suggest that one not use cooking spray is it makes the otherwise soft bottom rather crispy. My other observation is that it is best to use a small cookie scoop to create uniform shaps and sizes -- making it easier to match tops and bottoms. Finally, my best results came when the batter was chilled for 30 minutes. Those cookies were softer and higher just like the little cakes one would expect in a whoopie pie. The spread less than the unchilled cookies. While my earlier trials were 3s and 4s with the chilling, it was 5 star stuff. I used a half batch of Marshmallow Cream (Fluff) Homemade, Substitute, Copycat for the filling and found the small effort gave me a much better result as it was much fluffier and easier to spread than what you might buy in a jar. Also, because it had a little more moisture it kept the cake-like cookies a bit softer on day 2. (There was no day 3 as even my non-WW friends enjoyed them at polished them off at our BBQ.)

Yummy! I added about 3 tsp. of kahula to the cookie part of the whoopie pie to give it a little added flavor. Also with weight watcher's new points system (points plus) this is 3 points now, not two. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

Yummy Yummy!! Thanks for posting this! I think weight watchers is so easy because of all you wonderful ppl at the zaar. Made these as written except added a capful of vanilla to the egg and sugar mixture. And FYI make sure the cookies are completely cooled before putting in the fluff or they turn into ooey gooey sliders. I'm impatient and found this out the hard way :) Patience is a virtue...even for fat girls :)

Excellent!! These had a rich chocolate taste and baked up beautifully. I used a small cookie scoop and baked them for 6 minutes - they came out moist and chewy. I did add 1 tsp. of madagascar vanilla extract for flavor and they were fine. Very easy to make! Thanks for posting! This is a keeper!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this recipe. I was looking for this recipe (along with some others my mother (deceased since 1986) used to make) when I found recipezaar. Unfortunately I didn't find this until today... You see, these are SO GOOD that I didn't realize (or forgot) that they were WW. I was looking for homemade oreos LOL. You can bet I won't lose this recipe again. I made these tonight on my menu #16207 menu.

I make these when I'm wanting cake or something sweet,I've never had any problem making them-I love'em My kids love these too, so it's hard for me to get one-maybe that's the real trick to weight loss;) I'm going to try making the fluff with the next batch,I think that will be better!

I really enjoyed these. They are super easy to make and taste wonderful. I got the idea of stuffing them with ice cream so the next time I make them I will use ice cream instead of marshmallow cream just to see what they taste like.

These are a great low-fat version of a childhood favourite! I used a tablespoon of batter for each cookie and only ended up with 18 total. They flattened a bit too much; that might have been due to size but I felt the batter needed slightly less milk. You want the batter to be somewhere between cake batter and cookie dough. I used a portion of Fantastic Marshmallow Fluff Clone for the filling. Made for ZWT3 Zingo. Thanks!
