Whoopie Pies are by far one of my favorite treats. A cake like exterior, but the size of a cookie? Perfection if you ask me. But let’s be real, it’s not like I’ve found whoopie pies in my small town (heck, I rarely saw them in New York City), so I decided to make my own this holiday season.
I debated a lot between doing eggnog or gingerbread, but decided that the gingerbread flavor would make up for the fact that I’m most likely not going to have the time to build a gingerbread house this year. BOO. I used this recipe for the whoopie pies. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Christmas recipe without a bit of alcohol involved, so I used Maker’s Mark to make a bourbon cream cheese frosting.
Safe to say, they were gone within 15 minutes of taking them down to the boys at the bar
