My husband's mom always made these and they were delicious. I had to really work hard to get the recipe right. She never measured anything!

Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

3/4 c
crisco
2
eggs
2 c
sugar
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
milk
3 tsp
baking soda
2/3 c
cocoa, unsweetened
1 tsp
salt
4 c
all purpose flour

FOR FILLING

1 c
milk
4 tsp
flour
1 c
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
crisco

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all above ingredients for cakes EXCEPT flour. Once ingredients are thoroughly mixed add flour, one cup at a time until blended. Drop by tablespoon or cookie scoop onto cookie sheet and bake at 425 degrees for about 7-10 minutes. Cake should spring back a little when touched.
Remove from oven and cool thoroughly on cooling racks until ready to frost.
2
For filling: place milk and flour in a pan and heat on medium/low until it starts to get thick. You should be constantly stirring so it doesn't burn.
Once it is done, set aside to cool. Place sugar,vanilla and crisco in a bowl and add cooled milk/flour mixture. Beat with stand mixer until it can stand in a peak.
3
Take one cooled pie and frost with filling then place another cooled pie on top. Then you have a whoopie pie!

NOTE: This recipe is for a double batch. I am not allowed to make a single batch in my house! You can easily cut this recipe in half and it will make about 12-16 pies.
