I’ve posted pictures in the past of whoopie pies/Amish Sandwich cookies, but they were from a box. I decided to try my hand at homemade ones, and these are amazing! I only have a hand blender so it gave me a cramp to make these, but I want to make them all the time! They’re so good! I included the recipe for you all to try it too!
What you’ll need: For the Cookie part: 2 18-1/4 oz packages of Devil’s Food cake mix 4 eggs, beaten 2/3 cup vegetable oil
For the Icing:
1 cup milk 5 Tablespoons all purpose flour 1/2 cup butter, softened 1/2 cup shortening 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Beat together cake mixes, eggs, and oil, the dough will be very stiff (pictured below).
2. Roll dough into one-inch balls; arrange on ungreased baking sheets. Flatted balls slightly; bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 3 minutes; remove to wire rack.
3. Combine milk and flour in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until thick. cover and refrigerate. In a separate bowl, beat together butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add chilled milk mixture; beat for 10 minutes with an electric mixer on medium speed. (It will end up looking like this picture below)
4. Spread icing on the bottom of a cookie; place another cookie on top. Repeat with remaining cookies and icing. Makes 4 dozen (although I made mine a little bigger on purpose, so it made about 2 dozen)
They were really soft and soooo very tasty and creamy. Excellent to eat! I found out that after a couple days of having them sit out (under saran wrap) they still were soft and even BETTER tasting (since the icing settled a little, and no it wasn’t hard at all, in case you’re wondering).
