1. Red Velvet Whoopie Pies
Red Velvet Whoopie Pies
Learn how to make Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. We knew it would happen. With the widespread popularity of the Red Velvet Cake and the recent revival of the Whoopie Pie, it was inevitable that the two would join to give us the Red Velvet Whoopie Pie. And there is no denying how good these look and taste. Each cookie takes two round, domed shaped chocolate cookies, that have a cake-like texture, and sandwiches them together with a soft and tangy cream cheese filling. The contrast of a red cookie with a white filling is both a visual and tasty delight. I like to finish their look with a few squiggles of white frosting on the tops of each Red Velvet Whoopie Pie.
