Honey Whoopie Pies
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3½ dozen
Honey Cookies
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. fresh grated nutmeg
  • 4 cups flour
Marshmallow Filling
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup marshmallow cream (such as Marshmallow Fluff)
  1. In a medium sized saucepan, heat shortening, sugar, and honey until melted. Allow to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Line some cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  5. Add in the cooled honey mixture and mix on low until combined.
  6. Add in the flour and mix until combined.
  7. Using a teaspoon or small cookie scoop, scoop mounds of dough evenly spaced on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Leave enough space for the cookies to spread.
  8. Bake for about 7 minutes until the edges are just barely golden brown. They will still look under baked, but allow them to cool on the pan before transferring. They will finish baking out of the oven and lose the puffiness. Do not over bake or they will be hard.
  9. While the cookies cool, prepare the filling.
Marshmallow Filling
  1. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the shortening and sugar until smooth.
  2. Mix in the vanilla.
  3. Add in the marshmallow cream and mix until combined.
  4. Using a piping bag, cookie scoop, or a knife, fill one side of cookie with filling and sandwich another cookie on top.
