Tips

Expert Tips

For an extra-special touch, mix powdered sugar with a small amount of milk to drizzle on the finished whoopie pies.

For a thicker consistency, refrigerate the filling for 30 minutes before assembling the whoopie pies.

Don’t have a decorating bag and star tip? Simply spread the filling on the cookies instead.
