Whoopie Pies

Hello everyone, today I am going to give you all my recipe on how to make whoopie pies.  Now in my neck of the woods here in Maine we believe we are the originators of this dessert, however there are other places in argument over that.  I wont get into that here however if you are curious google can be your friend.  So a neighbor of mine wanted this recipe and I could have sworn that I put it up on this blog so she could just go to it.  Well long story short it wasnt here like I had thought.  However after today it will be.  So you can basically fill these little jems with whatever type of filling or frosting you prefer.  I have done peanut butter frosting, vanilla frosting, and even a marshmallow cream frosting which in my opinion was the best.  Ok so let's carry on shall we?


3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/2 cup of milk
3 cups of flour
3/4 cups of cocoa
3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
2 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
a pinch of salt


In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and add the milk slowly while creaming the ingredients.  You are looking for a light fluffy texture.  Next slowly add in all your dry ingredients the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and salt. Keep mixing until all ingredients are incorporated.  On a greased cookie sheet or you can line it with parchment paper or a sill pad, go ahead and just like cookies drop the batter down by the spoonfuls.  You can make these as big or as small as you like.  In a preheated oven to 350 degrees place your filled up cookie sheet in the oven for about 15 minutes or just until the whoopie pie is springy that means when you lightly touch the center it should spring back.  Or use the toothpick method of checking for done ness.  If these instructions are confusing for you not to worry I did a video on these a while ago and you can watch the video and see me make them.  Have fun cooking you all and Live, laugh and love.
