Whoopie pies

Yipee! I made Whoopie Pies today!
Ok. It’s no big deal. I’m attempting because I wanted to have a taste of it and to challenge myself if I could actually bake them successfully. I had, on a few occasions, wanted to buy but the price deterred me from doing so. Hmm…I think I will try to bake them myself.

Following the recipes from MS, everything was went ok except for the filling. It started to melt when I was taking pics of them! *sweat* I think I need to beat them longer so that it could reach the stage of stiff peaks?

It was an easy bake nonetheless. I had fun!

(From MS’ website) Makes 12

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat 1/2 cup butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat until smooth. With mixer on low, alternately add flour mixture and applesauce, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix just until smooth (do not overmix).
  3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 2 inches apart, onto two baking sheets. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cookie comes out clean, 10 to 14 minutes. With a thin metal spatula, immediately transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, make filling: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat vanilla and remaining 1/2 cup butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add confectioners sugar, beating until smooth.
  5. Spread bottom of half the cookies with 1 tablespoon filling each; sandwich with remaining cookies, pressing gently so filling oozes out slightly.  Let rest 15 minutes to set. (To store cookies, keep in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 2 days.)
