Sugar Cookie Whoopie Pies
Updated: Dec 12, 2018
Can you ever go wrong with sugar cookies and whipped filling? The answer should be: NO. But, we guys... we gotta be hones with you... because things kinda did go wrong…. Ok so, when we decided to make these Sugar Cookie Whoopie Pies we were like “let’s get fancy and make our own dough, not store bought. It’ll be better if it's homemade.” (Jenna's idea....) So, we looked online and found a recipe that claimed to be “THE BEST SUGAR COOKIES IN THE WORLD- so moist and so soft.” Well, she wasn’t lying. They were soft alright .... so soft that they would BREAK every time we picked them up. Did they taste good? Oh, they tasted amazing. But unfortunately, the texture just wasn't ideal for this dessert.
At first we were like, “we’re totally going to give this recipe a shout out on our blog.” But, we decided against it because, honestly, it probably wouldn’t be the best shout out considering how mad we were when we kept trying to pick them up LOL. THE COOKIES WERE BREAKING!!! As you can see in the picture above!! ^^^^^
To make a long story short…. Don’t do what we did. Just go to the store and buy sugar cookie dough to make your life easier. (Or, better yet, use a TRUSTED sugar cookie recipe)
Important tip- when you roll the dough into balls and put them on the pan, take a glass and press down on the ball to flatten it a little.
Another important tip- make sure you spread out the dough balls about two inches apart because we accidentally put them too close together and when it came out of the oven it was like one big sugar cookie. #wishwewerekidding But its ok, we're basically professionals and managed to dodge the bullet on that one. We took a circular cookie cutter and cut small circles from the one big cookie LOL. We wish we had a picture because it was pretty funny. #LIVEANDLEARN
Honestly, this was kind of a major FAIL during the process, but #noregrets because these actually tasted AMAZING at the end. You would never even know from the final product all of the problems we ran into during our attempt at making these f*****g Whoopie Pies.
While the cookies are baking in the oven, make the whipped filling. Nothing went wrong here, super easy! Make sure you are whipping it on high speed for at least 1-2 minutes (maybe even longer) because you want the filling to be super whipped and thick in texture so its easy to spread.
We used a piping bag to add the filling onto the cookies so that it would look neater because it’s all about looking good for the #gram, right? If you don’t really care about neatness and don't want to waste the time with a piping bag, you can just take a big spoonful of the filling and plop it onto the cookies and spread it. When you go to put the top cookie on, make sure you press down (smoosh that sh*t) enough so that frosting is coming out the sides a little. (This will bind the sprinkles)
Lastlyyyy, add the sprinkles. We used red and green sprinkles that we already had (because we're #festiveAF) but you can use any type of sprinkles you’d like!
No matter how many things went wrong…. It suddenly didn’t matter when we took our first bite into these Whoopie Pies. All we have to say is WOW and we advise you to go make them now. Just make sure to use store-bought dough or a TRUSTED sugar cookie recipe.
1 Dozen Sugar Cookies (store bought dough or homemade, refrigerated dough)
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 Cup International Delight Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer (or whatever flavor coffee creamer you prefer)
1. Bake the sugar cookies according to package instructions. (Or your trusted sugar cookie recipe)
2. While the cookies are baking, mix together the filling with heavy whipping cream and sugar cookie flavored coffee cream (we used international delight sugar cookie coffee creamer because we thought it would taste the best but you can use any flavor you’d like!)
3. Whip the filling on high for a minute or two till it gets to be a spreadable texture.
4. Make the Whoopie pies! Either pipe the filling onto the cookie or scoop a big spoonful of the filling onto one cookie and top it with another cookie. Press down a little (gentle smoosh) and then place on a cookie sheet. Do this with the rest of the cookies.
5. Add sprinkles. Hold the Whoopie pies one by one over a plate or bowl and rotate it in a circle in your hand as you apply the sprinkles.
6. Place them back on cookie sheet and put them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes (this will allow the filling to stiffen a bit... trust us... this step is critical)
7. When done in the freezer, take out and let sit for a few minutes. Enjoy!
