Chocolate Whoppie Pies

We love Whoopie Pies at our house, their are a nice big cookie snack! You can make them really big like they do on the East Coast or smaller. I like to use my regular cookie scoop because we are talking about 2 cookies sandwiched together with a lot of filling...Yum!

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup cocoa
dash of salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons vanilla

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt; mix well and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, shortening and eggs. Beat for about 2 minutes. Mix the dry ingredients with the egg mixture. Add the milk and warm water and beat at medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and beat again until the ingredients are thoroughly blended. This batter is for a cake like cookie. Bake as drop cookies. Drop by rounded tablespoons full onto ungreased non-stick cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated oven at 375° for 10 to 12 minutes or until the center of the cookies spring back when lightly pressed. Remove from the cookie sheets and cool a wire rack or white paper towels.


2 egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons milk
6 cups powdered sugar
1-1/2 cups vegetable shortening

Beat the egg whites until stiff; set aside. Combine the other ingredients and beat very hard for several minutes at high speed. Fold in the beaten egg whites. To make the whoopie pies - Spread a generous amount of filling on a completely cooled cookie. Top with another cookie. Wrap each whoopie pie individually in plastic wrap.
