  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, butter, eggs and food color with electric mixer on medium speed until well combined (batter will be very thick). Using 1-inch cookie scoop, drop dough about 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks; cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4
    For each whoopie pie, spread desired amount of cream cheese frosting on bottom of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down; gently press together.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For an extra-special touch, roll sides of finished whoopie pies in sprinkles of your choice.
  • tip 2
    If you don’t have cooking parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  • tip 3
    Don’t have a cookie scoop? A regular tablespoon will work fine.
