Easy Whoopie Pies
from a cake mix
(disregard directions on the box)
1 box of vanilla (or chocolate) cake mix
1/3 cup of water
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
**food coloring if you'd like to make them colorful**
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes.
Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
For filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Beat in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread filling on bottom of half of the cookies; cover with remaining cookies.
