Pink Strawberry Whoopie Pies

Okay, last whoopie pie recipe post for a while... I promise.

Happy Valentines Day everyone! My husband and I don't really celebrate the holiday, but I love the idea behind the celebrating St. Valentine and what he stood for. I also love pink and chocolate. So, because of these facts I'm posting a pink recipe. 

These are a pretty mild-flavored whoopie pie. They aren't as packed with in-your-face flavor as some of the other whoopies I have made (check out: Birthday Cake, Chocolate Oreo, and Oatmeal Cream), but they are very yummy.

There isn't any chocolate involved in this recipe (insert sad face), but its pretty festive especially considering strawberries seem to be the official fruit of Valentines Day. Plus, I'm sure you could add a little chocolate drizzle or something if you wanted.

Pink Strawberry Whoopie Pies
(Adapted from On Sugar Mountain)

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
Combine oil and sugar, whisking until thoroughly incorporated. Whisk in sour cream and strawberries.
Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Fold in flour mixture in two batches; do not overmix
Cover and refrigerate for 1/2 hour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of batter onto the baking sheets approx. 2 inch apart (to allow for spreading).
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from one of the cookies.
Let cool on pan for 10 minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Strawberry Buttercream
(Adapted from On Sugar Mountain)
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 drops red food coloring

Beat butter until fluffy, then add in powdered sugar. Slowly add in strawberries and food coloring and beat until frosting reaches uniform consistency.

Assembling the Whoopie Pies

Lay out your cakes in pairs (one for the top and one for the bottom) with the flat sides facing up, spread the filling on one of flat-sides of your cakes. You can do this with a spoon or a knife, or used a pastry bag or a cookie scoop. Top this with another cake to create a sandwich. Repeat with the rest of your pies.
