Easy Whoopie Pies Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup of unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup of granulated white sugar
  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup of lukewarm strong coffee or 1/2 cup of lukewarm water

For the vanilla filling:

  • 1/4 cup of vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar (sifted)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of light corn syrup

How to Make Whoopie Pies

Step 1:

Start by preheating your oven to 375F and placing an oven rack in the center of the oven. Get two baking sheets and line them with parchment paper.

Step 2:

Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt directly to a bowl.

Step 3:

In a bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer.

Step 4:

Add the egg and beat well. Next, mix in the vanilla extract.

Step 5:

In a small measuring cup, add the buttermilk and coffee (or water).  Mix well.

Step 6:

Turn the mixer on low speed, then alternately add the flour mixture and buttermilk/coffee mixture in three additions, beginning and ending with flour.

Step 7:

Drop heaping tablespoons of the batter onto the prepared baking sheets. Space them about 2 inches apart. Smoothen the top of each one using the back of the spoon.

Step 8:

Bake the cookies for about 9 to 10 minutes or until the tops of the cookies spring back when lightly pressed. Remove them from the oven and transfer to a wire rack when cooled completely.

Step 9:

Make the filling. Beat the shortening and butter together until soft and creamy. Turn the speed to the lowest speed, then gradually beat in the powdered sugar. Turn the speed to high, then beat until light and fluffy for about 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 10:

With the mixer on low speed, add the vanilla extract and slowly drizzle the corn syrup. Continue to beat until the filling looks like a soft mayonnaise.
