Whoopie pies aren’t exactly very pie-ish! Whoopie pies are basically what would happen if a cake married a cookie and had a baby.
Layers of cakey cookies, filled with usually some sort of buttercream, or marshmallow fluff. They are soft, they are scrumptious, and they will win your heart!
We begin with a thick thick batter. Thicker than cake batter, and slightly less thick than cookie dough. Like I said before, whoopie pies are a fine balance between cake and cookie.
The batter comes together quickly, and you can bake one tray at a time. Let your pies cool down before filling them with the buttercream filling.
For the salted caramel buttercream in the filling, I use a quick homemade caramel sauce. You can also use store-bought, no biggie.
