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

ha ha ha yep, might as well enjoy them!

I will have to give these a try...they look easy enough to make and also delicious!  Thanks for sharing--of course, hubby wants them to be the size of large hamburger! Must be a Pennslvania Dutch thing...

I will try one bite... Cheesy

that looks like what I've been craving too.... ( I could use a slice of cake, but have yet to give in to making a whole cake for the fun of it....)  I might just try these today.... and I might substitute butter for shortening.... or just run to the store when it opens (i need yeast to make bread anyway....)

These look awesome! Where I come from (western PA) we call them gobs, and yes, we take the VERY seriously!

butter would not work--it has to be shortening! Cheesy  as gross as it sounds to be, eating gobs of shortening would be way better than eating gobs of butter... Cheesy really? Cheesy

yep--GOBS!  ha ha isn't there some sort of weird controversy or something between PA and another state on who invented the whoopie pie? Cheesy We know it was the Amish, right? Wink

edited to add: omg--it is Maine! ha ha I Sew Cute, looks like your whoopie pies are making the news in Maine! Cheesy

bought the shortening.  The whoppie pies (or gobs or what ever they are called) will be baked while the bread is rising.

Looks very good! I'm a bit at loss what shortening is though...
I looked it up and I don't think we have anything like it here in Belgium, is that possible?
