1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Whoopie Pie Recipe ...You'll Thank Me Later! on: February 08, 2012 11:03:43 PM
Hello,  I am unable to eat shortening...  will this recipe work?


For cakes
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg

Thank you!  Jamie

I just whipped up a batch of these yesterday as we were lacking something sinfully sweet in our cupboard & I didn't have the ingredients to make the cupcakes I've been longing to do on hand. (note to self: pick up some Baileys Irish Creme)

These are traditional New England Whoopie Pies!

The outer part is like a cross between chocolate cake & brownies.
The filling is a cross between frosting & oreo cookie filling.
Any way you slice them, they're wicked yummy!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

INGREDIENTS:
I FORGOT!!! 2.5 Cups of FLOUR (sorry!)
1/2 C. SHORTENING
2 EGGS
1 C. SUGAR
5 TBSP. COCCOA
1 C. MILK
1 TSP. SODA
1 TSP. BAKING POWDER
PINCH OF SALT
1 TSP. VANILLA

Cream together everything until it's well mixed & fluffy looking. Drop by spoonfuls onto a well greased cookie sheet. Spread batter out until it's app. 3" across & 2/3" thick. Batter doesn't spread much during the baking process, so the final size will be what you create on the pan before baking.

Bake app. 10 minutes. You'll know when they're done when the surface no longer appears shiny & a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow to cool.

FILLING:
1/2 CUP SHORTENING
1 TBSP. MILK
1 CUP OF CONFECTIONER (POWDERED) SUGAR
1 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
1 TSP. VANILLA
.5 TSP. ALMOND EXTRACT

Cream together filling ingredients & then spread filling onto half of your pies & finally add another pie on top to make a 'sandwich'.

*For a lower calorie version of this recipe you may substitute all sugar with 'Splenda' or equivalent sugar substitute...but seriously with this much shortening, you may as well just indulge!

Enjoy! Please share with friends...and if you make a batch, please share your results on craftster!  Smiley

       Lovely - is it possibly for me to get an 8x10 printing of that? Wink
