Easter Sandwich Cookies

This whoopie pie recipe is absolutely delicious and is super simple to make. This recipe only uses a handful of ingredients to make it and it can be ready in minutes. This Easter recipe is filled with an array of colorful sprinkles and filled with a beautiful pink filling for a tasty treat that you won’t be able to stop eating.

Key Ingredients You’ll Need

Vanilla Cake Mix: Using a box of cake mix saves a ton of time! However, if you want to use a homemade recipe, you can.

Eggs: When making this recipe, you always want to use room-temperature eggs. It gives the best texture to the whoopie pies.

Butter: It is best to use unsalted butter for this recipe. Using unsalted butter will give you control of the flavoring in the recipe. This will allow the rawest and most natural flavor to come out in the recipe.

Sprinkles: I prefer using easter sprinkles for this recipe, but any sprinkles will work too!

Vanilla Frosting

Powdered Sugar: This is the best sugar to use when needing a frosting with a smooth consistency.

Vanilla Extract: Vanilla is used not only to add an aroma to the recipe but also to enhance the flavor as well for a sweeter and more delicious recipe.

Heavy Whipping Cream: This is a great thickening agent and when used at room temperature it creates a creamy consistency.

Pink Food Coloring Gel: Be sure to use food coloring gel and not the liquid form to make it blend easier into the ingredients. Use a drop to a couple of drops to make the desired color of the recipe. 

How To Make Easter Whoopie Pies

Step 1. Set the oven and use parchment paper or a silicone mat to line two baking sheets. Add the cake mix, egg, and butter into a standing mixer and combine using a whisk attachment until a soft dough forms. Put in the 1 cup of sprinkles and combine.

Step 2. Scoop the dough with a small cookie scoop and using your hands roll it into a ball. Place the rest of the sprinkles in a bowl and roll the ball of dough in it to fully coat. Arrange the cookies onto the prepared sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes in the oven. Take out and set aside to cool.

Frosting

Step 1. Add the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, heavy whipping cream, and a couple of drops of food coloring into a standing mixer and combine until creamy and stiff with peaks.

Step 2. Put the prepared frosting into a piping bag. Size up 2 matching cookies and pipe the frosting onto one cookie.

Step 3. Place the other cooking on top and press down gently. Serve and enjoy!

What Is A Whoopie Pie?

A whoopie pie is two cake-like cookies that are paired together. Before they are put together into a sandwich-style cookie, it is filled with frosting/icing.

Can I Make Whoopie Pies From Scratch?

Using cake mix for whoopie pies is a huge time saver especially if you are in a rush. However, if you have a homemade recipe you would like to use, you can. Either one will work just fine!
