Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies

30 Oct

The morning’s here in Seattle are dark and gloomy, to the point where I have no idea what time it is when I wake up. For example on Sunday, I arose and saw it was still pitch black out. I figured it must have been 5 in the morning and fell back to sleep for another three hours. It was 11am when I woke up again, which meant it was 8 am when I thought it was 5 am. DOH! The sun need’s to come back; my body cannot handle this weather.

However, I have no right to complain with Frankenstrom barring down on the East Coast.  I hope all my east coast readers are staying safe and dry.  And you’re house has not floated away. If I could, I would totally mail you guys some of these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies.  Eating these by candlelight makes it acceptable to eat three or four of them.  True Story. Enjoy!
Makes 15 pies


  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbsp butter – room temp
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup whole milk


  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


Whoopie Pies:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, the unsweetened cocoa powder, the salt and the baking soda. In a stand mixture, cream the sugar and the stick of butter on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract, beat until combined.  Turn your mixer to low and add in half the flour mixture then half the milk. Repeat until all the ingredients are mixed in. Pipe the batter onto the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the centers are set.

In a stand mixer, cream together the two sugars and the stick of butter. Add in vanilla and milk. Slowly add in the flour until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill ziplock or piping bag with cookie dough and pipe onto whoopie pies.
