Whoopie Pies


INGREDIENTS
For the Batter

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa (we used Nestle’s Special Dark)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup vegetable shortening (we used Crisco)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
For the Filling
  • 8 ounces marshmallow fluff (half of a 16-ounce container)
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable shortening (we used Crisco)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Approximately 1 tablespoon milk (to get filling to good consistency)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cocoa, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir to mix. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the shortening and sugar. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract and mix well.
  4. Slowly add dry mixture to the mixing bowl with the wet mixture and mix well.
  5. Using a medium (1½ ounce) scoop, place scoops of the batter onto the prepared cookie sheets (about 12 per sheet).
  6. Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 6-7 minutes (they may look a little bit wet on top but that is OK). With a spatula, remove immediately to cool on a wire cooling rack.
