You know I love whoopie pies.  And funny enough, my new temporary job is in Maine, which is about to name the whoopie pie its official state dessert -- even if the state has to get into a food war with Pennsylvania, which also wants to claim the goodness for itself.

They can fight over the bragging rights.  I, however, would rather be eating these awesome red velvet whoopie pies, which were made by my friend Amy from Bakerella's recipe.

And I'll let you in on a secret: these whoopies are allegedly super easy to make because you can use red velvet cake mix.  Shh!

Here's the recipe, courtesy of Amy and Bakerella:


  • 1 Box red velvet cake mix
  • 1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 8 oz. Package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 1lb. Box of confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

First make the cookies by mixing the first four ingredients until combined.  Drop spoonfuls of cookie batter onto baking sheet about two inches apart.  Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool.

Then make the cream cheese frosting by creaming the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla in a mixer.  Gradually add sugar and mix until smooth.

Makes about 24 cookies or 12 cookie sandwiches
