Blogmas Day 20 – Christmas Whoopie Pie Recipe

I love whoopie pies, they definitely don’t get the love they deserve compared to the likes of cupcakes. They sit about halfway between a cookie and a cupcake and are dense and rich in flavour. Plus the icing sits between two pie halves, meaning no awkward jaw-unhinging maneuvers to try and fit all the icing in your mouth.

This recipe comes from Sorted Food, with some adaptations from me for appropriate Christmas flair.

Ingredients

  • 140 g plain flour
  • 40 g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 90 ml buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g butter
  • 140 g brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 handful mini marshmallows, halved
  • 1 handful red and green M&Ms
  • Red and green buttercream icing
  • 1 handful extra marshmallows

Step 1

PREHEAT THE OVEN

Preheat the oven to 200Β°C.

Step 2

BEAT THE BUTTER & SUGAR

Beat the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy, an electric whisk might be easier.

Step 3

ADD THE WET INGREDIENTS

Pour in the beaten egg, vanilla extract and buttermilk slowly and continue to whisk hard.

Step 4

FOLD IN THE DRY INGREDIENTS

Sieve in the dry ingredients and fold into the mixture gently until fully combined. Stir through the marshmallows and red and green M&Ms then scoop individual teaspoons

Step 5

BAKE THE COOKIES

Full of the mixture onto a baking parchment lined tray, leaving plenty of space between each one for them to spread. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes then remove and leave to cool completely.

Step 6

PIPE THE ICING BETWEEN TWO WHOOPIES

Create a small batch of buttercream icing (100g of butter, 1 – 3 cups of icing sugar depending on preferred consistency, 1 tsp flavouring of your choice) and pipe between two whoopie halves.

Step 7

DUST WITH SUGAR & SERVE!

Dust with some icing sugar to decorate and get your friends and family to tuck in. Makes 12

Swirled the green and red together for a festive look.
