Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Today was a beautiful day.

Last night was Friday night.  So, in my house...that means Mr. Bo got up with Little Bo Pink.  Last night...I got to sleep.  ALL NIGHT LONG.

Today was a beautiful day.

Not only did Mr. Bo stay up with the baby...he then woke up, entertained Little Bo Blue for hours, fed Little Bo Pink...THEN...did all the yard work.

He is my hero.

So for my hero...I made him his favorite.  Chocolate Whoopie Pies

What my man man gets.
(most of the time.)
(when I am feeling "in love")
(when he sweats all day and laughs with our kids.)
Such yummy dough.  It is a cross between cake batter and cookie dough.  Otherwise known as...heaven.
I got a nifty "Whoopie Pie Pan" from Mr. Bo for Christmas.  It was a hint.  A major hint. 
Oh yeah.  Whoopie pie creme...made of these three ingredients.

Can you smell the sugar in the air?

So...a favorite for my favorite. :) 

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
1/2 salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/4 sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 tsp vanilla
1 c milk
Mix well in a bowl.  Batter will be very thick.  Drop by teaspoons on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes.  (Recipe by Donna Jernigan...Mr. Bo's Aunt!)

2/3 cup marshmallow creme
1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup powdered sugar
Beat filling ingredients with electric mixer until light and fluffy.

For each Whoopie Pie, spread about 2 tsp of the filling on the bottom of one cooled cookie.  Top with 2nd cookie, bottom side down; gently press together.

Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.

Mr. Bo is pretty awesome! Those pies look delicious. Mr. Edling is reading this over my shoulder & asking me to make them for him! LOL! I'll tell you how it goes. Miss you & love you lots!


Oh my gosh... these look so good! Good thing I just got back from the store, or I would have bought all of the ingredients to make these, and then eaten them all before John got home work tomorrow! :)
