Whoopie Pie Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

INGREDIENTS:
2.5 Cups of FLOUR
1/2 C. SHORTENING
2 EGGS
1 C. SUGAR
5 T. COCCOA
1 C. MILK
1 t. SODA
1 t. BAKING POWDER
PINCH OF SALT
1 t. VANILLA

Cream together everything until it’s well mixed & fluffy looking. Drop by spoonfuls onto a well greased cookie sheet. Spread batter out until it’s app. 3″ across & 2/3″ thick. Batter doesn’t spread much during the baking process, so the final size will be what you create on the pan before baking.

Bake app. 10 minutes. You’ll know when they’re done when the surface no longer appears shiny & a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow to cool.

FILLING:
1/2 CUP SHORTENING
1 TBSP. MILK
1 CUP OF CONFECTIONER (POWDERED) SUGAR
1 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
1 tsp. VANILLA
5 TSP. ALMOND EXTRACT

Cream together filling ingredients & then spread filling onto half of your pies & finally add another pie on top to make a ‘sandwich’.

*For a lower calorie version of this recipe you may substitute all sugar with ‘Splenda’ or equivalent sugar substitute…but seriously with this much shortening, you may as well just indulge!
