Whoopie Pies that is!!! Happy St. Pat’s guys! I hope you’re enjoying your day. Here’s a quick great recipe for a fabulous sweet treat.
8 Tbps butter
6 oz sugar
9 oz flour
5 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract (make it more Irish: replace vanilla with whiskey)
1 cup buttermilk
For the Filling
9 oz powdered sugar
12 Tbsp butter
2 egg whites
1 tsp peppermint flavor
1 tsp green food coloring (use pink for Valentine’s whoopie pies!)
1. Preheat your oven to 350°. Prepare a cookie sheet by spraying lightly with Pam or by brushing with oil and then dusting with flour to prevent sticking.
2. Sift together dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. I suggest weighing dry ingredients for the most accurate measurements.
3. In large bowl beat the butter until pale. Slowly add sugar and continue beating until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time and beat well.
4. Next alternate adding dry ingredients and the buttermilk slowly until well mixed. Don’t over mix.
5. Using a spoon, shape into rounded drops about 3 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 15 minutes and cool completely.
8. Beat butter until fluffy.
9. Add about 1/3 of the powdered sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add one egg white and mix well, followed by another 1/3 of the powdered sugar. Add the second egg white, mix well. Add the rest of the powdered sugar.
10. Add peppermint flavoring and food coloring and mix until a firm frosting is formed (it needs to be soft enough to spread on the cookies, but firm enough to hold up and not run out). Add more powdered sugar if too thin and a tablespoon of milk if too firm.
When the cookies have cooled, spread the bottom of one cookie with filling (you can be the judge of how much filling you want) and then sandwich it with a second cookie
