So, most of the christmas product has arrived at the Gourmet Warehouse. I thought it was difficult enough to resist buying half of everything in the store. But with the cute packaging, snow flakes, and all the red and green, I had to give in.
I’ve never made whoopie pies before, nor have I ever tried them. I don’t think we even have these in Canada, or at least not in Vancouver, but I have read a LOT about them. I think they’re the new “cupcake” in the blog world.
It’s basically just a cakey sandwich cookie. Soft chewy cookie/cake, with buttercream icing inside. Nothing wrong with that.
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 2 cups icing sugar
- 1-2 tbsp water or milk to thin to your liking
Combine all ingredients in a stand mixer, with a hand blender, or with elbow grease.
You now have buttercream icing! Feel free to add any extracts/food colouring if you wish.
