Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies
(Makes about 18 cookie sandwiches)


1 3/4 cups corn starch (others can use flour)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch process)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.  Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt into a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Add butter, shortening and sugars to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; cream on high speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add egg; beat until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Add half the flour mixture, then the milk and vanilla; beat until combined. Add the remaining flour mixture.  Beat together, scraping down sides of bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
  3. Drop 12 slightly rounded tablespoons of batter 2 inches apart on each baking sheet.  Bake the cookies in the upper and lower thirds of oven, 10 minutes; switch the positions of the baking sheets and rotate each one.  Continue baking until the cookies spring back to the touch, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  4. Remove from oven; let cookies cool on baking sheets, 10 minutes.  Transfer with a metal spatula to a wire rack; let cool completely.  Meanwhile, line a cooled baking sheet with a new piece of parchment; repeat process with remaining batter. Spread 1 scant tablespoon butter cream on flat sides of half the cookies.  Top each with one of the remaining cookies, flat side down, and gently press together.  Transfer pies to a tray.

Peanut Butter Buttercream
(Makes about 1 cup)


2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
8 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Cream peanut butter and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on high speed.  On low speed, mix in sugar until combined, then beat mixture on high speed until fluffy and smooth, about 3 minutes.  Add salt to taste, if desired.  Use immediately.

The recipe says "best if eaten the same day" but we have found it OK to keep in the refrigerator.  We have also tried to freeze and have had no problem.

Good Luck.
