Super Bowl Whoopie Pies

Since Whoopie Pies are one of the best inventions EVER, I decided that they would make a great dessert for the Super Bowl Party. So I just made chocolate whoopee pies and made the frosting in the navy blue and green of the Seahawks for between the cookies. I just ate 3 of them. Hopefully there will be some left for Sunday. They are easy to wrap individually in Saran and then in a baggie to stay fresh for Sunday. Very easy make-ahead dessert.

1/2 cup softened butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teas vanilla

2 cups flour

1/2 cup baking cocoa

1 1/2 teas baking soda

1/2 teas baking powder

1/2 teas salt

1 cup milk

Filling

1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow creme

1/2 cup shortening

1 teas vanilla

2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.

Drop dough by tablespoonful (I used a medium size cookie scoop) 2″ apart onto greased baking sheet. (again, I use a coated sheet, so if you use them, do not grease the sheet) Bake 6-8 min or until set and tests done.

Remove from pans onto paper towels or wire racks to cool completely.

For Filling

In a large bowl, beat marshmallow cream and shortening until blended. Beat in vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth. I add food coloring to a little milk and beat into mixture. Spread on the bottom of half of the cookies and then top with the other half. Wrap in plastic and keep in sealed container for up to 3 days.

Makes about 2 1/2 dz.
