Delicious Whoopie Pies

Chocolate cake circles sandwiched with a creamy vanilla frosting-like filling. Recipe makes 1 dozen.

Ingredients:

• ½ cup shortening

• 1 cup white sugar

• 2 eggs

• 2 cups all-purpose flour

• 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

• 1 teaspoon baking powder

• ½ teaspoon salt

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

• 1 cup milk

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• ¾ cup shortening

• 2 cups confectioners’ sugar

• 1 pinch salt

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. To Make Cookies: In a large bowl cream 1/2 cup of shortening, 1 cup sugar and 2 egg yolks. (Set egg whites aside for filling.) NOTE: If you don’t want to use raw egg white in the filling, leave it out. Substitute 1 whole egg for the 2 egg yolks in the cookie recipe so you don’t end up with leftover whites!!
  3. In a separate bowl sift together 2 cups flour, 5 T cocoa, 1 t baking powder, 1/2 t salt, 1 t baking soda. Add to other mixture alternately with milk, beating well. Add vanilla at the end.
  4. Drop by large spoonful on greased pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool completely.
  5. To Make Filling: Beat together 3/4 cup shortening, 2 cups confectioners’ sugar, 2 egg whites and dash of salt till light. Add 1 tsp. vanilla.
  6. To assemble: Spread the flat side of one cookie circle with a spoonful of filling. Top with another
