Whoopie Pies!

These are SO good!

I made these a few years back, and I recently stumbled upon the recipe and decided to make them again! I did change the filling recipe by not adding as much shortening, but adding more marshmallow cream. They are surprisingly easy to make, and they taste just like Oreo Cakesters! (Even my super picky brother liked them!)

First Come the cookies!
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup milk
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat all of the ingredients together until well mixed, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and drop the dough, one Tablespoon at a time onto an gaeased cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake the cookies for 5-10 minutes. While the cookies cool, make the filling.
Creamy, Fluffy, & Gooey Filling!

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 1/2 cups marshmallow cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 to 6 tablespoons milk

Beat the shortening, sugar, marshmallow cream, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of the milk together until fluffy. Add more milk if needed. Spoon a generous dollop of filling on half of the cooled cookies, and place another cookie on top to make a sandwich.

Happy Baking!
