Irresistible Whoopie Pies

There really is no other combination of flavors like chocolate and peanut-butter.  It’s completely and utterly irresistible.  That’s why, for an end-of-summer treat, my younger brother and I decided to make this fantastic recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking Chez Moi.


For the pies

2 cups flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 stick butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup milk

For the peanut-butter filling

3/4 stick butter

1/2 cup peanut-butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, beat butter then add both sugars and beat till well blended.  Add egg, mix, then add vanilla.  Alternately add the dry ingredients and the milk.  Scoop in spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake 8-10 minutes and allow to cool before assembling.

For the filling, simply mix all the ingredients.

Once the pies have cooled, pair each one with another of a similar size.  Then take one of the pies and spread some of the filling across it.  Gently put the pies together without pressing them down.  Enjoy!
