Whoopie Pies with Peanut-Butter Butter Cream

whooooopieeeeee

Little whoopie pies look so cute! And they look hard to make but they aren’t! They are super easy and you can get so creative with the frosting or cream you put between them. The cookie part is like a brownie/cake/cookie … super soft and delicious.

And what is more of a classic combination than chocolate and peanut butter? If my aunt living in Maine tastes one of these … I think she will be proud!

START!

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees

Line 2 cookie trays with parchment paper

INGRIDIENTS

Whoopie Pies

–          2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate

–          4 ounces of semisweet chocolate

–          1 cup of sugar

–          3 large eggs

–          1 stick of butter

–          2 teaspoons of cinnamon

–          1 teaspoon of vanilla

–          1 cup of flour

–          ¼ cup of cocoa powder

–          ½ teaspoon of baking powder

–          Pinch of salt

Chop the chocolate and the butter and put in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 minute increments until it is melted. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla with a whisk. Once the chocolate cools, add it to the egg mixture and combine. In another bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa, salt, and cinnamon, and whisk together. Add a little of the dry ingredients to the egg and chocolate mixture.

Once everything is incorporated together use about a tablespoon ice cream scoop or a spoon to scoop the batter onto the parchment lined cookie sheets. The whoopie pie cookies should look like little scoops of ice cream spread about 1 inch apart from each other.

Put them in the oven for about 6 minutes.  Then let them cool!

Peanut-Butter Butter Cream

–          1 stick of softened butter

–          1 cup of powdered sugar

–          ⅛ cup of peanut butter

–          1 teaspoon of vanilla

–          1 tablespoon of heavy cream

–          1 teaspoon of cinnamon

With an electric mixer or stand mixer, start mixing up the softened butter. Add the peanut butter and combine, and then slowly add the powdered sugar. After ½ of the powdered sugar is combined, add the vanilla, cinnamon and heavy cream and mix together, then add the remaining ½ cup of powdered sugar.

Assembling!

Once the cookies are cooled, turn half of them upside down.

Pile or pipe the butter cream on the cookies. (I used a large round tip to pipe)

frosting!

Put an unfrosted cookie on each frosted one, making sandwiches!

EAT THEM!

CUTIE ∙ WHOOPIE ∙ PIES
