Strawberries & Cream Whoopie Pies

Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete without adorable baked goods, right? I think half the fun of Valentine's Day is getting to make treats that are pink or red or heart-shaped, or just plain sweet! These adorable little whoopie pies are perfect for your sweetheart! :) 


Recipe adapted from here.

1 package Pillsbury Moist Supreme strawberry cake mix
2 eggs
3/4 cup shortening
8 oz cream cheese, softened
4 tbsp butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

1. Mix together cake mix, eggs, and shortening until well combined (dough will be thick). Roll dough into balls (about 25-30 of them), and place balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
2. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
3. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar until smooth. 
4. Once cookies have cooled, make whoopie pies by spreading the cream cheese mixture onto cookies and sandwiching cookies together (try to pair each cookie with another that is close to the same size).
