Yields: 12 whoopie pies
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes



Cookie Dough
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Marshmallow Crème Filling
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, slightly softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 jar (7 to 7-1/2 ounces) marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla extract



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two large cookie sheets.

2. Prepare Cookie Dough: In large bowl, with wooden spoon, beat flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt, milk, butter, egg, and vanilla until smooth.

3. Drop heaping tablespoons dough 2 inches apart to form 12 cookies on each prepared cookie sheet. Bake until puffy and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 12 to 14 minutes, rotating sheets between upper and lower oven racks halfway through baking. With wide spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

4. When cookies are cool, prepare Marshmallow Crème Filling: In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter until smooth. Reduce speed to low; gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Beat in marshmallow crème and vanilla until smooth.

5. Spread 1 rounded tablespoon filling on flat side of 12 cookies. Top with remaining cookies, flat side down.
