Accurate Family Kitchen Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Enjoy the delicious flavor of red velvet in these bite-sized treats.

Ingredients:

For the mini cakes:

1 box red velvet cake mix (18.25 oz)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp bourbon

For the cream filling:

4 cups powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tsp evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flaked coconut
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Directions:

For the cakes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix together cake mix, eggs, oil, and bourbon in a large bowl. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops start to crack, about 8 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

For the cream filling:

  1. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, butter, evaporated milk, vanilla, and coconut. Add the confectioners’ sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing well with each addition. If consistency is too stiff, add more milk.

For the finishing touch (with or without pecans):

  1. Spread a generous amount of icing on the bottom of a cookie, sandwich it with another cookie, pressing firmly so that the icing comes all the way out to the edge.
  2. If using pecans, place pecans in a separate bowl. Roll the edges of the sandwich cookies in the chopped pecans.
