Whoopie Pies are like the new cupcakes, maybe even the new cake pops.
They are easy to make, adorable and beyond yummy.  You can make them from scratch, or…you can be like me, and doctor up a cake mix to create these treats.

  2. Michelle says:

  3. Aaaaah Looking Very Nice!!!! 😀 I'm from the Netherlands so I have to find out which products i can use here but I'm definitely going to try these!! Can't Wait!

    I'm reading your Blog for a while now! Love it! 😀 I had my baby when I was 22. My daughter is now 16 months. I can relate to many thinks you are writing. At this moment my baby is running trough the house holding the ends of my gift ribbon. It's now everywhere!! hahaha

    I just want you to know that I love your blog, didn't know if I should post a comment cause I'm from the Netherlands (Maybe you wouldn't understand my 'hollandish English'.

    I'm going to try this recipe as quick as I can!!! Yummy in my tummy. Thanks for posting!!

    Big Hug,
    Tjarda

  4. wildchild says:

    yumyumyum! i can't wait to make these. i wonder if i could just add some cocoa powder for chocolate frosting in the middle?

  5. Those look so so good. I have always been afraid of whoopie pies because I thought they would be very hard to make…I think you just conquered a fear of mine 🙂 My abs do not say thank you.

  6. Anne Marie says:

    This is such a fun idea!! I'm totally going to use these for my husband's birthday. Thanks for the fun idea 🙂

  7. Danielle says:

    I can't wait to make these!

  8. I love seeing "what goes around comes around". My mom made these for us in the early 80s! :). I still have the original recipe. Her icing is the cooked flour recipe. Your blog is adorable!!

  9. YUM! Going to make these very soon…Bring on the sugar! Thank you for sharing such a fun recipe Ashley!

  10. Jessica says:

    I could eat them all by myself : )

    This is getting bookmarked, it is going to be absoulutely perfect for my son's birthday. I always thought I would need a whoopie pie pan to do the caky part, good to know it works well without the pan. Jake was born on Halloween and I can see these fitting right in with orange and black sprinkles!

  11. Sarah @ Scissors and a Whisk says:

    Yum!! I've made pumpkin whoopie pies before, and I loved them.

    I think it's funny that you said to get them outta your house. I usually do a fourth or half of a recipe (if possible). If I do a full recipe, I *definitely* have to get it out of the house ASAP!

  12. Ok, this might seem like a strange comment but – do all eggs look like this in America?? They are so white they almost don't look real??

    More on the subject, these really look yummy and I think I'll be giving them a try asap! Thanks Ashley! x

  13. Jenae @ Wildflower says:

  19. mmm!! my mom used to make these…i think i need to whip up a batch. anything with cream cheese is automatically guaranteed to be delish.

  66. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

  67. Oh my gosh how can I keep being good on-my diet when I see something this yummy… think I will make them for my two year old daughter’s birthday!

  68. I finally made these today delicious =] thanks for sharing!!

  69. Okay, this is next on my “recipes to try” list!! Thanks Ashley!!

  70. I made these today and they were very EASY and QUICK to make! They tasted AWESOME too!
    Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe! 🙂

  71. I made these for my mom and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day using red velvet cake and cherry chip cake to make 2 different kinds of pies. Well, the moms went bananas over them and thought they came from a fancy bakery because they looked so professional! I rolled the sides of the red velvet pies in chocolate sprinkles from Holland and the cherry chip in red sugar crystals. We even had some extras for the hubs and me. Hubs “tested” one when they were ready — his reaction: “I LOVE YOU!”
    Needless to say, these were a hit! Thanks for making me look like a baking rock star! 😉

  72. Rebekah says:

    I made these today and they are wonderful! I ended up with 40 Whoopie Pies, though. Not 24. YAY! More to share!

  73. I’m making these right now-they are turning out great! So fun and festive. I have a question-do you need to refrigerate the cookies since the frosting has cream cheese?

  74. I’m making these right now-they smell great! Do you have to refrigerate the cookies, with the cream cheese frosting?

  75. I made these for the 4th, and they came out perfect! Thank you! I think you are awesome!! 😉

  76. I’m not sure why but this site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check
    back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  77. I think the admin of this web page is actually working hard
    in support of his site, since here every stuff is quality based data.

  78. I do trust all of the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very brief for newbies. May you please lengthen them a little from next time?
    Thank you for the post.

  79. You ought to take part in a contest for one of the best sites online.
    I will highly recommend this blog!

  80. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve four
    emails with the same comment. There has to be a
    way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

  81. Its ideal for small logos and is popular with commercial clients as it provides one
    of the most durable methods of branding clothing for
    businesses. Because lighter ink was screened
    twice on the garment. Another group that should consider purchasing custom T shirts is church groups.

  82. I have a question about using just shortening and eggs for the cake mix. I am used to using butter and oil. How does all shortening change the texture of the cake, and the taste? I love the idea… just a bit gun-shy. Thank you! 🙂

  83. Pretty great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished
    to mention that I’ve really loved surfing around your blog posts.
    In any case I will be subscribing in your rss feed and I hope you write
    once more soon!

  84. Can I use a whoopie pie pan instead of the parchment paper?

  85. Oh my goodness this looks sooo good!

  86. THEY ARE MARSHMELLOW FILLING
