To combat the cold, I decided to bake. T was at soccer and E was heading off to a meeting at church, so another simple recipe was in order since the priority was heating up the kitchen. I remembered a quickie recipe that I once made from Allrecipes for red velvet whoopie pies. All ingredients were on hand: cake mix, eggs and oil. (We omitted the bourbon but would love to try in the future!)
After mixing red velvet cake mix, 2 eggs and 1/2 cup oil, I used to ice cream scoop to place onto parchment-lined baking sheets. We baked at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until baked through.
After cooling, we sandwiched with a basic buttercream (butter, whipping cream & confectioner's sugar).
They were really yummy and so simple. My favorite pastime is cooking and baking....and I love challenging pastries. But sometimes simple is fun and I forget that I don't need to make something elaborate to please my boys.
I had half of one (thank you, WW points). These would be a darling Valentine's treat or fun snack for your loved ones. My husband has a big old whoopie pie waiting for him when he gets back from his meeting. I love him!
