    In large bowl, mix all cookie ingredients with wooden spoon until wet dough forms. Spray hands generously with cooking spray; roll teaspoonfuls of dough into 2-inch balls. Place about 1 inch apart on cookie sheets.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    These whoopie pies can be made in advance and refrigerated. Be sure to remove them from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before serving.
  • tip 2
    To save time, substitute a container of Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting or Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white frosting for the filling. If you do this, the whoopie pies don’t need to be stored in the refrigerator.
