Valentines Whoopie {Pies, that is.}

posted on: Monday, February 14



Happy Valentine's Day lovers! W and I celebrated over the weekend with dinner, wine, and hooka! If you've never been to a hooka bar I suggest you go. It is definitely a fun {and interesting} experience. We had a blast although I think it will take a few days for the fruity smoke scent to leave our jackets. I decided to make whoopie pies for Valentine's Day this year. Find the recipe below, just be sure to use lots of food coloring if you want yours to be nice and pink! I also want to mention that I recently participated in the handwritten notecard exchange put together by A Hasty Life, and was linked up with some wonderful ladies that you can find here, here and here. It really is fun getting things in the mail! I sent everyone a card along with homemade candies seen here. It was great to have new pen pals and to learn a little about these women that I've never met. A fun way to make new friends if I do say so myself. Have a loverly day everyone!

Pies:
2 ¼ c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 egg
1/3 c vegetable oil
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8-10 drops red food coloring
¾ c buttermilk

Heat oven to 350˚F. Lightly spray two large cookie sheets with non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat the egg, oil, and sugar with a hand mixer. Beat in the vanilla and red food coloring. Using a spatula, stir in (by hand) the flour mixture and buttermilk alternately, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.

Drop by spoonfuls (I used a mini ice-cream scoop), onto prepared cookie sheets. They will spread, so leave a lot of space between scoops. Bake until the tops spring back lightly, about 8-15 minutes, depending on their size. Remove to wire racks to cool. Spread marshmallow filling onto the bottom of one cookie, and top with another to make a sandwich.

Filling:
½ c butter, softened
1 c confectioner’s sugar
1 c marshmallow fluff (about ½ of a 7.5 oz jar)
½ tsp vanilla

Beat ingredients in a bowl until light and fluffy.
