Chocolate Whoopie Pies

On Sunday while cutting my coupons out of the newspaper I came across a recipe for Chocolate Whoopie Pies. They looked so good I just had to try them. I followed the recipe given for the cakes, but when it came to the filling I did not have any marshmallow filling, so I used the filling recipe that my mom used when she made Whoopie Pies a while back. They came out very good. LinkI feel they actually taste better cold, but that is just my opinion. Well if you never had a Whoopie pie I would recommend you do. :)

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp butter softened
4 Tbsp vegetable shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups milk

1 cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp water

Preheat the oven to 375*F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a mixer, with a paddle attachment, beat butter, shortening, and brown sugar on low speed until combined. Increase speed to medium and beat for 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; beat 2 more minutes. Add half the flour mixture and half of the milk to the batter, beat on low. Add the rest of the flour mixture and milk. Using a spoon drop batter 1 Tbsp at a time onto the baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cakes spring back when gently touched. Remove from oven and transfer to cooling racks. While cooling prepare the filling. Add the butter, powder sugar, vanilla, and water to a mixer. Beat until smooth. Place filling on one of the cakes and then take another cake and place it on top making a sandwich. Repeat until all cakes are filled and enjoy. :)
