Until recently I had never heard of a Woopie Pie but now there are recipes popping up all over the place. Some are made from scratch and some are made with a cake mix. Well I like to keep it simple so I decided to give them a try using a cake mix. So here is the recipe I used.
1 cake mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix cake mix, eggs, water and oil. Spoon 1 Tbsp. on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil. Bake about 8 - 10 minutes or until done. Cool completely on a rack.
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 jar (13 oz.) Marshmallow Fluff
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 oz. cream cheese, softened
On med. speed, mix until combined. Spread over flat side of one cookie and top with the flat side of another making a sandwich.
Now comes the fun part. I always like to Think With My Taste Buds so to keep from having to make several batches I decided to add my flavors to the icing. After spreading icing on one of my cookies I sprinkled some with coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, toffee, finely chopped nuts and some with combinations using coconut and chocolate chips, etc. I also made a few mini cakes by putting about 1 1/2 Tbsp. of the cake mix into muffin tins and baking them for about 8-10 minutes or until done. These were cooled and iced with my icing and topped with different flavors such as cherries, sprinkles and even a mix of coconut and pecans. These cookies are perfect to make with the kids.
