While I was waiting at the doctors the other day I was looking through a few magazines when I came across this recipe in Family Circle. Will instead of writing down the recipe, because I didn’t think I had enough time and because the receptionist was busy I took a picture of the recipe with my new cell phone. I told Richard who was sitting nearby that I felt like a spy sneaking around taking photos of private documents. Will the document is not so private any more.
I did rewrite the instructions for the recipe just a little because I thought they were a little long and I almost forgot the water in the recipe because it was written in the instructions and not listed in the ingredients. So I listed it there. I also double the filling ingredients, because I didn’t think there would be enough, because I love butter cream frosting. And make sure you leave enough space between the dough on the cookie sheets because it will spread out while baking.
The whoopie pies turn out like Ariel said “YUMMY I like eating the crunchy outsides first!”
