    Old Fashioned Whoopie Pies

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    2 cups unsifted flour
    2/3 cup cocoa
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 cup hot water
    2/3 cup milk
    1/2 cup vegetable shortening
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg


    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup vegetable shortening
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 cups powdered sugar
    3-4 tbsp milk


    First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together
    the flour and the cocoa; set aside. In a small bowl, dissolve the baking soda
    in the hot water, then add milk, set aside.

    In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the shortening and sugar until fluffy.
    Add the egg and beat another minute. Mix in half of the dry ingredients, then
    half of the wet; repeat.

    Drop batter by heaping teaspoons, about 2 inches apart, on an ungreased
    cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool thoroughly.

    Making the Filling

    In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter, shortening, vanilla extract,
    and powdered sugar, beating until fluffy. Add milk, one tablespoon at a time,
    until the frosting has a creamy consistency.


    Using a butter knife, spread the frosting between two cookies. Wrap Whoopie
    Pies individually or place them in a single layer on a plate.

    Makes 2 dozen.
