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!

How to Make Whoopie Pies


  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.
