Whoopie Pies

Whoopie Pie!
This is my husband’s favorite dessert! I received this recipe from my wonderful and talented sister-in-law, Peg, at my bridal shower.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup Crisco
2 eggs- beaten
4 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup “Sour milk” (1 cup milk plus 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice- stir let stand 5 minutes before use)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients (accept water). Then add boiling water. Mix well. Spoon onto greased cookie sheet and bake 8-9 minutes.

1 pound powdered sugar
¾ cup Crisco
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 teaspoons water
Mix well and spread between two cooled cookies

Great food porn. I remember making these in high school foods class. I am going to have to try and dig up that recipe now.

I ADORE whoopie pies!! My Mom's family is from PA and we used to eat the one's from the Amish bake sales.

Your blog is adorable.
