Mint Whoopie Pies

Cake:

  • 2 cups unsifted flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk

Filling:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup Marshmallow Creme
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract

Preheat oven to 350*F

In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa and sugar. Add egg, oil, vanilla and milk and combine well. Drop about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies are firm. Watch them carefully as they will harden or burn quickly.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

In a medium bowl combine butter, marshmallow cream, and mint. Stir in icing sugar until smooth and fluffy. When making filling I recommend using 1 tsp of mint and trying it first before adding the other 1 tsp.

Put filling into a piping bag. Turn one cookie upside down, and cover with as much filling as you want. Top with another cookie and serve.
