Whoopie Cookies Recipe

I don’t always have time to make whoopie pies from scratch, so I tweaked a cake mix recipe to create these. Try a bit of peanut butter in the filling, too. Whoopee for saving time! —Nundi Harris, Las Vegas

  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
