  • 3
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks; cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Expert Tips

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