{delightful} Whoopie Pie

Whoop it up for valentines Day!

I first had a whoopie pie when my husband and I lived in Pennsylvania. We would go to the best farmers market there. Unbelievable! They had all flavors of whoopies - traditional chocolate, red velvet, pumpkin. The traditional whoopie is made with a more cake type cookies. But the 10 year old's didn't seem to mind my switch.

There is nothing healthy about this. But a treat now and then is good for the soul I say. So butter, sugar and chocolate chips it is. These treats go right to a kids heart. Sweet fluff sandwiched between two yummy cookies. And we have a few extra cookies to boot.

(this recipe is one that sue and i perfected when we had our catering business - sweet classics! I can't even guess how many chocolate chip cookies we made???? too many to count for sure!)

4 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 cups sweet butter - soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tbls corn syrup
3 eggs
2 tbls vanilla

cream your butter and sugars. Add your eggs. Mix your dry ingredients and add them. Fold in your chips. Bake at 375 degree oven on parchment paper for 11 - 15 minutes depending on the size of your cookie. let cool.

1/3 cup shortening
1/3 cup butter - soft
1 cup powder sugar
1 1/2 tbls corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla
2 pinch salt
1 7 oz jar of marshmallow creme

With a mixer beat the shortening, butter, sugar and corn syrup, vanilla and salt until fluffy. Add the marshmallow creme until blended. Fill your cooled cookies.

note: This isn't my favorite whoop. I think I would prefer a traditional butter cream. But this one is easy and the kids LOVED it!

happy valentines day!
