The Girl is leader at Preschool tomorrow and it happens to be Dr. Seuss Day that day as well. I wanted to make a themed snack and looked around for ideas.
After going to the store the idea hit me of Whoopie Pies. I have never had one or made one, but this is my interpretation of one. I didn’t want to use a lot of food colorings so strawberry was perfect to have something similar to the Cat in the Hat. I found a cookie recipe from cake mix, but changed it a bit for this.
Strawberry Whoopie Pies
Can of Whipped White Icing (I used Betty Crocker again. I tried the Vanilla and the Fluffy White)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I used my handy cookie scoop and placed them on a ungreased baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes. Baking times will vary. Move them to a baking rack while still warm (they will stick to the pan). Once cool ice the bottom of one and put another cookie on it.
Easy as can be!
Flatter Cookies? I noticed they were baking slower and not rising as much on my shinier pan (one on the right) for the second batch than the first batch on a dull little bit darker pan. As with any new recipe try one cookie first to see what adjustments need to be made with temperature and time.
These that went a little flat I just iced and put blue sprinkles. A little 4th of July and little Dr. Seuss all in one!
