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 Recipe #52036 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 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 :)

<p>I am a step-mother of one 12 year old boy who will be a teen this summer (07). My family lives in the town my DH and I were born in, population 5000. By day I work in customer service, but in my spare time I am a chef, artist and photographer. Well... I play at those things, anyway. To date my DH and I have lost 75lbs combined on Weight Watchers, so I have joined to pick up some new low fat recipes to add to my collection. My biggest love in life, aside from my human family, are my dogs. I work for a dog rescue org. and love every minute of it. <br /> <br />We adopted Angel from the local Humane Society. Her mom was rescued from an abusive owner while pregnant with Angel's litter. She is a terrier mix and is wild as they come. She is easily the happiest dog I have ever met. She's smart, too. She loves to steal Gizmo's toys and hide them from him. <br /><img src=http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa178/alkite/100_0112.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br />Gizmo was rescued from a breeder by our neighbor's kids. They discovered that Basenjis are a handful, however, and when their work schedules were increased they needed to find him a new home. We have fallen in love with him, in all his haughty ways. He has a great sense of humor and is the oddest dog I have ever owned. <br /> <br /><img src=http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa178/alkite/100_0037.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br />Participation Awards <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif alt= width=75% /> <br /><img src=http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b314/potscrubber/teambanner1.gif alt= /> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/RecipeSwap2.JPG alt= width=50% /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg alt= width=50% /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></p>
