From My Kitchen Recipes/ Sweet Treats

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

An old high school friend of mine that I re-connected with on Facebook has been stating her son loves vegan whoopie pies.  Truthfully, I had to look up what a whoopie pie was.

I am from Wisconsin, and I had never heard of anything like them.  I searched all over the internet looking for a recipe.  I just had to make them because they sounded really good. Although, I didn’t need to make the vegan variety.

Looking online, I was able to find a number of recipes, however, there were so many variations and I didn’t even know where to start.

During a phone conversation with my best friend, I brought up the fact I wanted to make some whoopie pies and she said she was going to ask her mother who had made them for years for her recipe.

I waited for a few weeks and then I received a phone call back. It came at the right time!  Only days before Valentine’s Day.

I made them today and they couldn’t be easier!

Materials for Filling:
4oz Cream Cheese at Room Temperate
4 Tbsps Butter
3 1/2 C Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla

Materials for Cookies:
1 Stick Butter (room temp)
1 Egg
18.25 oz Red Velvet Cake Mix

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix 1 stick of butter, 1 egg and the 18.25 oz red velvet cake mix together. The mix will not be liquid like a standard cake mix. Instead, it will be on the crumbly side but moist.

Use a 1.5 Tablespoon cookie scoop to mold your cookies shapes and keep the same shape. Place them on a non-greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. The tops will look a little glossy when finished baking. Remove from the oven and let sit on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes to cool. Then transfer to a cooling rack to completely cool.

To make the filling I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer to combine:
4 oz Cream Cheese (Room temp)
4 Tbsp Butter (Room temp)
3 1/2 C Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla

Mix until smooth and creamy.

After the cookies are cooled.  Rinse off the scoop you used for forming the cookies this way you can use it to fill the centers too.

Finish off your whoopie pie by topping it off with the second cookie. Press it down slowly and evenly.

Then you can store them in the refrigerator or you can wrap them and freeze them. if you freeze them let them unthaw before eating.

ENJOY!!
