What are Whoopie Pies?

If you aren’t familiar with whoopie pies, then you’re in for a treat!  Whoopie pies have 2 cake-like cookies with a sweet filling in between.  It makes the perfect hand-held treat!  The options are endless with what type of whoopie pie you make between the cake-like cookies and what type of sweet filling you use.

For these whoopie pies I used a cake mix, making it super simple to make. And for the filling, I used my favorite cream cheese frosting recipe. I love how carrot cake and cream cheese pair so perfectly.

My favorite cream cheese frosting is made with cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Once the whoopie pies bases have cooled you’ll start assembling.   Take one side of the whoopie pie and on the flat surface slather a couple of tablespoons of the cream cheese frosting.  Take the another whoopie pie and smoosh the flat side onto the cream cheese frosting to create your delicious carrot cake whoopie pie!

Sprinkle with some powdered sugar to finalize these Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies.
