Ingredients

Whoopie Pie Cookies

  • 1 box French Vanilla cake mix
  • 8 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Red and Blue gel food coloring

Whoopie Pie Filling

  • 3 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk or heavy cream

Instructions

To Make Whoopie Pie Cookies

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter and in a large bowl, combine with the extract, cake mix and eggs.
  • When you have your ingredients combined, split the batter evenly into two separate bowls.
  • Add in several drops of red food coloring into one bowl and the blue into the other. Mix the food coloring in so that you have one bowl of red batter and one bowl of blue.
  • Drop a spoonful of the batter into your hand after spraying your hands with non-stick spray and roll it into a ball and set on your cookie sheet. You can also drop the dough directly onto the cookie sheet and shape it into a round ball shape with your fingers.
  • Cook cookies for 9 minutes.
  • Remove them from the oven, let them cool for one minute and then move them to a cooling rack.
  • Once completely cooled, spoon frosting onto the back of one cookie and then top it off back to back with a cookie of the opposite color, making a sandwich.

To Make Buttercream Frosting

  • In a large bowl combine sifted powdered sugar, vanilla extract, butter and milk and beat until light and fluffy.
