Heart Whoopie Pies*

13 Feb

Whoopie! I’m finally home after a week traveling for work. Thank goodness because I’m wiped (and sick :(). I had every intention of posting these heavenly red velvet whoopie pies while I was in PA, but time simply did not allow it. However, it’s never too late for whoopie pies, right? I didn’t think so.

Ingredients – Whoopie Pie
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1 cup packed brown sugar
-1 egg
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/2 cup buttermilk
-1 table scoop red food coloring

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment; set aside. In medium bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
2. In large mixing bowl beat butter on medium to high 30 seconds. Beat in brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk, beating after each addition just until combined. Stir in food coloring.
3. Spoon batter in 1- or 2-inch diameter rounds, about 1/2-inch high on prepared baking sheets, allowing 1 inch between each round.
4. Bake 7 to 9 minutes for 1-inch cookies or 9 to 11 minutes for 2-inch cookies, or until tops are set.

Ingredients – Filling
-1/4 cup softened butter
-1/2 8 ounce package softened cream cheese
-1 7 ounce jar marshmallow creme

-In medium mixing bowl beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Fold in marshmallow creme.

Make these for your Valentine. You’ll thank me later.

xo, FF
