Whoopie Pies

This is a cheater recipe. It uses mixes and marshmallow creme, but when time is limited, it's perfect.  My husband's niece makes them all of the time and every time I see her, she thanks me for this great recipe.  My kids think they are super.  In a moist climate, they will tend to get really damp after the first day, so you may want to store them in the fridge.  In a dry climate, like here in Arizona, they are fine on the counter (though they really don't last more than a day in my house).

Whoopie Pies
1 box devils food cake
1 small package instant chocolate pudding
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup marshmallow cream
1-2 Tbls milk
Make the cake mix according to directions, except use only 3/4 cup water. Beat for one minute and then add package of pudding mix. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out batter onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 14 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool completely before filling.
For filling: Beat together the shortening and sugar in medium bowl. Add the vanilla, marshmallow cream and enough milk to make it fluffy. Beat well until smooth.
Spread the filling on the flat side of one cookie and top with a second cookie, flat side down. Repeat until all are filled.

we love whoopie pies!! My FIL is from Indiana and my MIL makes whoopie pies fact my oldest daughter wanted them for her birthday instead of cake. I've found a recipe for pumpkin ones as well, and martha stewart or someone had a recipe for lighter version.
