Whoopie Pies

Serve up some whoopie pies at your wedding and your guests will be thanking you later.

This recipe is from none other than the Costco Connection magazine.

1 packages (18.25 ounces) of plain chocolate cake mix
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted
1 large egg
2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 large pasteurized egg white (see notes)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Place a rack in the center of the oven and pre-heat the oven to 350 F. Set aside 2 ungreased baking sheets.

Place the cake mix, butter and egg in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mizer on low speed until the ingredients come together in a stiff mass, 1 to 2 minutes. Form the dough into 1 inch balls with yuor hands or scoop the dough into balls. Place the balls of dough on baking shets 2 inches apart.

Bake the cakes until they are stll a little soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cakes cool for 5 minutes. Transfer the cakes to wire racks to cool completely, 30 minutes longer.

Place the confectioners' sugar, shortening, egg white and vanilla in a medium size mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until just combined, 1 minute. Spoon about 1 teaspoon onto the flat side of one cake. Top the filling with a second cake to make a sandwich. Repeat with the remaining cake and serve. Makes about 18 total.

Notes: The filling in this recipe is uncooked and uses a raw egg, so make sure it is pasteurized. Or, sandwich soft ice cream between the cakes and store them in the freezer. Coffee, mint chocolate chip and vanilla are all delicious.
