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.
