Anyone who loves Amish-style whoopie pies is going to go wild over these for Easter! Imagine putting these yummy colorful mini Easter Egg Cream Sandwiches displayed in a basket or tray on your dessert table. Or maybe even bring 'em along as an awesome edible gift.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) white cake mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 drop each red, yellow, and green food color
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil, and eggs; beat well. Divide batter into 3 separate bowls, then add a different food color to each bowl to make pastel red, yellow, and green cake batter; mix well. Drop tablespoons of batter onto baking sheets in an oval shape.
  3. Bake 7 to 8 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool slightly, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. In a saucepan, combine milk and flour; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until it forms a thick paste. Let cool.
  5. In a medium bowl, beat together sugar and shortening until fluffy; stir in vanilla then cooled flour mixture, and beat until doubled in volume. Turn half  the cooled cakes over on their backs; spoon each with a dollop of filling. Cover with remaining cakes, forming sandwiches.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Since I was going to the trouble of putting the mix into separate bowls to add food coloring; I added a few drops of additional flavoring to the individual colors. I used lemon flavoring in the yellow; almond in the green batter; and occasionally will use anise or maple in the third batter.

I made these and was not thrilled. The cookies were extremely sticky. I won't be saving this recipe.

doestreich1 Thanks so much for tip! And Happy Easter from my family too yours...

Can this filling be used as a frosting,for cup cakes? Thanks for any feed back!

Not only that, but you can use it as a frosting for cakes. I have it in a yugoslavian cookbook, and it is so smooth and creamy. Make sure you beat it for long enough, though. In my cookbook, I think you have to beat it for about 12 minutes! But well worth it.

This filling sounds like the frosting for a red velvet cake. It is delicious. BUT, very unhealthy. I don't like sweets but people rave about my red velvet cake so the filling must be good.

The filling really sounds nasty. I wouldn't make it with flour, milk, sugar and shortening--no way. It might taste alright, but it's not healthy at eating paste as a kid. Or Cool Whip, which is mostly whipped oil. I would use a vanilla creme or a cream cheese frosting with only half the sugar. As Fluffy said, use a cream cheese mixture.

This filling recipe is the bomb. This is the way to go. Best stuff.

Then don't make it....problem solved. Why do you people clog up the responses with your personal hang ups....we don't care!!! Either make it and respond to it's taste or do not make it...very simple. Get a life.....

Try using a pudding mix then.

I have been making Whoopie Pies for several years, in fact the recipe for the filling is exactly the same, this idea of making them into easter cookies is terrific, thank you!

I am concerned about the filling. I usually use a creme cheese mixture for my filling in whoopie pies. Is the filling really good?

I was wondering about the filling too. do you think you could substitute some applesauce for like half the shortening? I really want to try these.

You can't beat the filling, it is excellent, smooth and creamy, in fact I am going to try making it sugar free, using Splendor

I am REALLY curious to know how the recipe came out using Splenda. I have a few boxes that I got free with coupons and might try it too!

These are adorable for easter, but they would make such cute wedding favors too! I love them! (And of course, I love weddings, lol....)
