4th. of July Whoopie Pies!

Good morning!
I thought that it might be nice to kick off the day with a patriotic recipe! For those of you who have never heard of a whoopie pie, you have certainly been missing out! You start out with this simple chocolate cookie recipe. However, it is the marshmallow fluff frosting that creates the full effect!

*We usually use butter due to certain food allergies in the family. Using butter will make them spread a little thinner and they will dry out faster. Using shortening will make them less crumbly and less dense.

Whoopie Pie Recipe

2 Cups flour

1 Cup sugar

1/2 Cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
