Lemon Whoopie Pies are a spin on your favorite classic Amish dessert recipe. This is one recipe that everyone will want more of!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (18-1/4-ounce) package lemon cake mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar

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. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, at least 3-inches apart.
  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 large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and lemon zest until fluffy. Beat in confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time until smooth.
  5. Turn half the cooled cakes over onto their rounded sides and spread a dollop of filling over them. Place the other half of the cakes on top of the filling, forming sandwiches. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

These sound amazing. Whoopie pies are one of my faves, but I've never had lemon before! Will have to try.

I love lemon, and my Grampa loves whoopie pies so it is the perfect dessert.
