"W" is for Whoopie Pies!

I did not want to miss Alphabe Thursday. I am trying to turn over a clean slate and really watch my eating habits but who in their right mind could ever resist a yummy, gooey wonderfully delicious Whoopie Pie? Tonight I am going to share a recipe I have found that is a family favorite from a collection of recipes that I found.

Hope you like it! If you do share it with everyone you know and make sure you tell Ms. Jenny that I sent you over!


Whoopie Pies

1 18.5 oz. devils food cake mix
5 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup of milk
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup of shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1. Prepare the cake mix as directed except  using on 3/4 cup of water
    Drop batter onto greased cookie sheet or use parchment paper lined cookie sheet into 2 1/2 inch to        3 inch  circles. Bake until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool.

2.  To make the filling: In a saucepan combine milk and flour and cook , stirring constantly until it    
     forms a thick paste. Let cool.

3.  In a medium bowl beat sugar and shortening until fluffy. Add vanilla. Add cooled flour mixture      
     and beat until doubled in volume.

4.  Turn the little cakes over on their back. Spoon a dollop of folling onto the little cakes. Add the
      second cake to form a sandwich.

You may sprinkle the finished pies with powdered sugar or you may also color the filling to match a birthday party theme or holiday.

Whoopie! That is some pie. I am not a chocolate lover, but sure do know people who would love this. I will have to pass this on to them. Thanks for sharing. Whoopie is one of the best W words ever!

Would you believe I have never tried one of these. They are not something you hear about in Northern Canada. They do look good though. I may have to try it for a treat for my three girls. Thanks for sharing.

I`d have to make sure that there was lots of company in the house before making these, or they`d go directly to my hips!

When I read 'pie' I was expecting something with pastry (e.g. meat or apple), so this was a surprise.

I'm afraid I hardly ever bake, tho it does look very tempting!

(Think lettuce leaf, think lettuce leaf, think lettuce leaf...)

The amish around here love making these.

I wonder why they are called Whoppie Pies? :)

Just thought you might enjoy this:

The world's largest whoopie pie was created in South Portland, Maine on March 26, 2011, weighing in at 1,062 pounds.

Oh wow. This looks wonderful!

I am also enamored of pumpkin whoopie pies...but I'll pretty much eat any kind at all!

Thanks for a delicious link for Alphabe-Thursday's letter "W".

What a perfect choice for the letter!
