I got this recipe from Weight Watchers many years ago. I am ashamed to admit that I am a Weight Watcher's quitter! Any-hoo. These cookies are amazing. They are only 2 points per serving. I'm sure it would be better if I limited the amount that I ate, but they are so good!

Ad

Total Time: About 15 minutes, plus cooking time.

Yield: The recipe says 18 servings, but I only got 13.

Source: Weight Watchers

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening (I like the butter-flavored)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup low fat (1%) milk
  • 3/4 cup marshmallow spread

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Ad
  3. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the sugar, shortening and egg white in a medium bowl until fluffy and well blended, about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the flour mixture then the milk, until just blended.
  5. Ad
  6. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto a large, ungreased baking sheet, making 36 cookies. (I only got about 26 cookies. They were a little larger than called for. Oops!)
  7. Bake until the top springs back when lightly touched, 5-7 minutes.
  8. Ad
  9. Allow to cool completely then spoon 2 teaspoons of marshmallow spread on the bottom of the cookie. Top with another cookie.

*It's best to make these as you are going to eat them. The marshmallow cream tends to ooze out and cause a mess. I just keep the cookies in a container and make them up when the need arises!

Someone wrote in quite a while ago and wanted the recipe for Whoopie Pies. I just found mine. So I am sending this on the off chance that this might be another good recipe for her and one she does not have And this one is delicious!

Ingredients

Filling:

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine cocoa and water, mix well. Cool for 5 minutes (in refrigerator).

In another mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add cocoa mixture, eggs and vanilla, mix well. Combine dry ingredients (I always just pile the dry stuff on top of each other) and mix well with the other ingredients. Saves time.

Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly with a spoon. Bake for 12 minutes or until firm to touch. When done, cool on wire racks.

In a saucepan, combine flour and salt. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thick (about 5-7 min). Remove from heat. Cover and refrigerator until completely cool.

Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, cream shortening, sugar and vanilla. Add chilled milk mixture; beat for 7 minutes or until fluffy. Spread filling on half of the cookies,top with remaining cookies. Keep stored in refrigerator. Yield 2 dozen.

Good Luck, hope you like it.

You may have better luck doing an internet recipe search for Whoopie pies rather than cookies. Why they're called pies, I don't know! For the cookie part of the recipe, I think any very soft cookie recipe would work. The filling is the tricky part. Here's the best recipe I've found.

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening

1/2 cup softened butter

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 cups Marshmallow Fluff

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

Beat the first four ingredients together, then stir in the vanilla until well blended.

You can almost feel this stuff hardening in your arteries, but it makes a delicious filling for all sorts of cookies such as chocolate chip and oatmeal, and is also very tasty spread on things like banana bread or croissants. I store it in the fridge and set it out to warm up to spreadable temperature before I use it.

I'm planning on making Whoopie pies as Christmas presents. I want to make them earlier in the month if possible. How could I store them to retain their freshness?

Freeze them on a cookie sheet and then place them in freezer bags/containers until gift giving time :-)

When I make Whoopie Pies, I wrap them individually right after making. They can be stored in a plastic container such as an empty ice cream pail, tupperware ect.

Then you can get a few out or the whole container. This worked great for me. I hope it works for you.
