Whoopee pies

Love chocolate and bourbon.  Usually we put it in a pie with walnuts.  I didn't have the fixings for the pie so I made whoopee pies.

The brother says they are 'real good'.  So here they are.

Chocolate whoopee pies with bourbon pecan filling


8oz cream cheese softened
1 stick butter softened
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/4 cup bourbon
1 cup toasted pecans


3/4 cups softened butter (1 1/2 sticks)
2 tsp instant coffee
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup double dutch coco powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a mixer combine first five ingredients of filling.  With a wooden spoon fold in nuts.  Cover and refrigerate until cakes are baked and cooled.

Again in the mixer cream together the butter and sugar til smooth, about 2 minutes.  Mix in eggs one at a time.  Beating until smooth after each egg. Add vanilla and beat til smooth.

Sift together dry ingredients.  Beat into wet ingredients by thirds.

Dough will be sticky.  

Drop by Tablespoons onto parchment covered cookie pans. 

Bake 10 Minutes
Remove parchment paper and cakes to cooling rack. 

Spread filling on bottom of 1 cake.  Top with second cake.  Eat

Makes 40 whoopee pies.  I froze half the dough and filling for future decadence.

ENJOY!  We did!
