Lemon Whoopie Pies Recipe

Lemon Whoopie Pies 

My family just loves a good Whoopie Pie. In case you did not know what a whoopie pie is, it is a delicious dessert!! It is not a pie, as the name suggest. The “pie” is actually two pieces of cookies (I have also seen people use cake) that is usually made out of chocolate and has a sweet and creamy filling between them. Pretty much like a sandwich, but a whole lot sweeter and more delicious. There are so many different variations to this sweet treat that the possibilities are endless.

Recently, I have been on a tropical spree and loving everything with a Caribbean taste or exotic taste. At the store the other week I picked up some lemons to make my homemade lemonade. While snacking on a whoopie pie I picked up at the store, it hit me. I wanted to try my hand at making Lemon Whoopie Pies. I am very happy with the end results and I could not wait to share them with my readers. If you prefer, you can also choose other flavours of cake mix such as chocolate and make Chocolate Whoopie Pies!

They are really easy to make. You will need the following ingredients:

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon cake mix 
  • 3/4 C water
  • 1/2 C oil
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 bag white chocolate melting chips

 

Frosting ingredients

  • 1/2 C unsalted sweet cream butter
  • 1 TBSP coconut extract
  • 2 C Powder Sugar
  • 1 TSP vanilla
  • 3-5 TBSP heavy whipping cream.

Let’s get these made and enjoy a delicious treat:

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine all ingredients into a standing mixture or large mixing bowl with hand mixer.
  • Mix until all is combined
  • Place a piece of parchment paper onto a cookie sheet.
  • Scoop some batter with an ice cream scooper onto the cookie sheet, about 3 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Pull out and let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes.
  • Using a metal spatula, transfers the pies onto a plate to cool more while you prep the frosting.
  • while frosting is being made, in a double broiler, melt some white chocolate melting chips and set aside.

Frosting Directions

  • Combine all ingredients, except heavy cream, into a standing mixture.
  • If the frosting looks like powdery pebbles, add the heavy cream.
  • Once stiff peaks are formed, scoop frosting into a piping bag with a round tip.
  • Pipe icing onto one side of the whoopie pie and place the other side on top.
  • Using the melted white chocolate, drizzle onto the whoopie pies
  • Grab a glass of milk or water and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed my Lemon Whoopie Pies as much as my family did. If you make it, make sure to share with us on Facebook or Twitter! Also, check out all of our other Recipes.
