Dessert Recipe: Lemon Raspberry Whoopie Pies
Truffles, cupcakes, and treats on a stick — there are so many different types of delicious food trends that are taking place right now. What is one of my favorite trends? Whoopie pies. Although, I'm a little late on the Whoopie Pie train so please forgive me. My goodness, if I would have known how good they were I would have hopped aboard a long time ago.
If you are like me (until recently) and have no idea what a Whoopie Pie is don’t worry, you aren’t alone. A Whoopie Pie is a cross between a cake, a cookie, and a cupcake! Isn’t that fantastic?! You can make them in any flavor you want and whatever size you like. I made regular size and mini whoopie pies. I preferred the mini whoopie pies because it was just two bites and I didn’t feel guilty for eating one afterward.
There are about a million and one ways to make a Whoopie Pie but my favorite is with a box of cake mix! It can’t get much easier than that! I did make my filling but you could also use store bought icing, if you don’t fill up to making your own. However, I promise making your own is really easy.
Lemon Raspberry Whoopie Pie Recipe
For the Cake:
- 1 Box Cake Mix (I used Lemon for this recipe)
- 3 Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1/2 Cup Oil
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Beat all ingredients on medium low speed until combined.
- Fill piping bag (or zip-top storage bag) with cake mix. If using a zip-top bag snip one of the corners off and push mix toward corner. You can make whatever kind of design you would like, I piped circles on the lined cookie sheet.
- Bake the cake mix. If making bigger pies bake for 7-10 minutes. If making small pies bake for 4-6 minutes.
- Cool completely on rack.
For the Creamy Raspberry Filling:
- 1 1/2 Sticks Unsalted Butter, softened
- 1 1/3 Cup Marshmallow Cream
- 3/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 oz Cream Cheese, softened
- 1 1/2 tsp Raspberry extract
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat until smooth.
- Flip half of your pies over to form a top and bottom. You should have half of the flat sides facing upward and half domed side facing upward.
- Place a mound of filling in the center of each flat side up pie.
- Top with remaining pies, domed side, up and press gently to spread filling.
- Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
