Our Test Kitchen has put a festive holiday spin on popular Amish Whoopie Pies. Bake a batch of our Holiday Whoopie Pies and maybe even leave one out on a plate for Santa on Christmas Eve. Bet he'd love that!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 1 to 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • Red and green decorating sugar
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In large bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil, and eggs; beat with an electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets.
     
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool slightly then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
     
  4. In saucepan, combine milk and flour and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until thick paste forms; let cool.
     
  5. In medium bowl, beat granulated sugar and shortening until fluffy; stir in peppermint extract then add cooled flour mixture and beat until doubled in volume. Add 1 cup confectioners' sugar and beat until mixture is stiff, adding more if needed.
     
  6. Turn half cooled cakes over on their backs then spoon a dollop of filling onto each. Place remaining cakes on top of filling, forming sandwiches. Sprinkle the filling with decorating sugar, then serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.
