It is always fun to receive a special treat from your visiting teachers!

Last week I made Whoopie Pies to share with the sisters we visit! I assembled the pies, put them in small cellophane bag, and added a cute little card that read: "Whoopie! We love being your visiting teachers!" It was a big hit!

Dad's Whoopie Pies
(makes 15 cookies)
1 C. Sugar
1 egg
1/2 C. butter, softened
1 t. vanilla
1/2 C. cocoa
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 C. all-purpose flour
1 C. buttermilk
3/4 C. butter
1 C. powdered sugar (sifted)
1 1/2 C. prepared marshmallow cream
2 t. vanilla
1/4 t salt

1. Preheat oven to 375
2. With an electric mixer, beat the sugar, egg, butter and vanilla until light and creamy. In another bowl mix the cocoa, baking soda, salt, and flour; then blend the buttermilk into the creamed mixter
3. Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto greased baking sheets and bake 7 to 9 minutes. Remove from the baking sheets and cool on wire racks. (Makes 30 mini-cakes)
4. To make the filling, mix together all ingredients well.
5. To assemble, sandwich a heaping tablespoon full of cream between two cakes, dividing cream evenly between the 15 whoopie pies.

They are scrumptious! Happy Visiting Teaching!
