The gingerbread cookie is so moist, and when it mixes with the lemon creme, its amazing. The peppermint adds a little more spunk overall.

This recipe comes from McCormick.

How to Make Gingerbread Whoopie Pies with Lemon Creme

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. Beat 3/4 cup of the butter and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add molasses and egg; beat well.
  3. Gradually beat in flour mixture until well mixed. Press dough into a thick flat disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of cookies begin to brown. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
