Chocolate Whoopie Pies


Whoopie Pies


  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 c. unsifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Filling (recipe follows)

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease two large cookie sheets and set aside. In a large bowl with mixer at medium speed beat egg and vegetable oil. Gradually beat in sugar and continue beating until pale yellow in color. In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a measuring cup combine milk and vanilla. Add flour and milk mixtures alternately to eggs and sugar, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. These will spread a lot, so make 6 cakes per sheet at a time. Bake about 5 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched with finger. Remove to wire racks to cool. When cool, use filling and two cakes to make sandwiches. Makes 15.

Filling:
  • 1/2 c. butter or margarine
  • 1 c. confectioners' sugar
  • 1 c. Marshmallow Fluff (about 1/2 of a 7 1/2-oz. jar)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
In a medium bowl with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and remaining ingredients until light and fluffy.


Dab a glob of icing in between two cookies and sit down before you take a bite because it is delicioussssss!
