Makin Whoopie

Aww c'mon people, get your mind outta the gutter.  We're not talking about that.  THAT happened 8 months ago...just look at my tummy! 

Moving on....this past weekend (what a weekend!) involved swimming, doctor interviewing, picture taking, stroller installing, and....DADS day!!  See, we're super special in the fact that we are just not bound by one day (or, um, Dad had to work) so on Saturday, we celebrated Dad's day with my side, then on Sunday, Greg's side.  Golfing, grilling, and Dad time.  And mine...happens to love carrot cake.  But hey, I'm his kid.  And kids like pies.  So we did pies.  Whoopie ones.  

Whoopie Pies (makes 12)

1 box carrot cake mix
2 egg whites
1/2 cup applesauce

1/2 cup butter
 2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Add egg whites and applesauce to cake mix, stir thoroughly until lumps are out.  Place parchment paper on 2 cookie sheets, and drop dough by tablespoonful on cookie sheets (24 cookies).  Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.  Cool on cooling rack for half hour, or until fully cool.

For the frosting, warm butter to room temperature.  Add all ingredients into high powered mixer, whip on high for 2-3 minutes until stiff.  Spread between cake layers to make 12 whoopie pies.

Nom nom nom nom.  Dad approved.  Kid approved.  And one more recipe for that Mommy arsenal :-)  But i would wait a few days on these least till it cools down. Until then, popsicle molds are where its at!
