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, Nevada

"These came out so pretty and tasted awesome to boot! I altered the filling a bit, cutting all but 1 oz of the marshmallow fluff, adding a few tbsp heavy cream, vanilla and then confectioners sugar to thicken and sweeten. Nice, and the whole operation took less than 30 minutes."

"when I tried this I fogot to get the cream cheese out of the fridge so I put it into my mixer first and beat it by itself until it was light and fluffy. Then I added the marshmallow and it worked just fine. I think the trick is to make sure the cream cheese is really soft."

"The filling won't turn to "liquid" if you beat the cream cheese until fluffy and then fold in the marshmallow fluff. Use reduced fat cream cheese if you would like to trim the calories and fat a bit."

"This is a terrible recipe. I am not a novice baker and have a pretty good feel of how things go in the kitchen. I was looking for a short cut and so, I tried this recipe this morning and the cakes were flat and not really that great tasting. The icing was nothing but a liquid mess. A complete waste of ingredients and time! Don't repeat my mistake of trying it because it looks easy. There is no way that the photo provided is actually the recipe that it is attached to."

"I made these for a get-together and they were a big hit. They are super soft and chewy. They are the perfect size, so you don't have to feel too guilty when you can't stop after just one!"
