Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Good morning peeps.. so far so good eh... am back to my usual routine of updating my blog on my so called "regular basis".. am hoping it will stay that way eventho Ramadhan is creeping in super fast this year.. am very very excited .. cant wait.. the same reason why other Muslims around the world are excited abt the month of Ramadhan.. Insyallah ..

Whoop whoop whoopie pies.. what not to like abt em.... easy to grab.. easy to munch and best of all.. they are easy to prepare.. they may look like macs but they are one dessert where cracks are allowed to happen and feets are allowed to not appear lol.. i hv baked chocolate whoopie pies with swiss buttercream.. i hv baked chocolate whoopie pies with cream cheese fillings.. this time around i baked red velvet whoopie pies with cream cheese filling.. this RVWP as what i wud like to call them has a different texture then my CWP.. somehow the use of apple cidar vinegar gives this whoopie pie a much more moist texture.. the melted chocolate that was added gives this RVWP a different taste then the normal RVWP.. (err not that i ever tried any other recipe than this one).. when it comes to deciding which recipe to use for certain cakes.. i tend to go the extra mile.. i hv always been a little lucky in choosing recipes .. hmmm well except for the crepe cake that i baked not long ago hahaha

So anyway since i am hooked on my Mastrad mac sheet.. i thought why not use my mac sheets to bake whoopies.. i know for sure that i will get the same size.. know for sure that i will get the perfect circle.. just like when i bake my macs on my sheets.. these whoopies came out perfect too.. love love love Mastrad for inventing it in the first place! hehehe pls dont ask me how many sheets i hv at home for my personal use cos u dont wanna know and honestly eventho i am selling the smaller size sheets.. i still dont own one.. maybe i shud this time round ey.. :op

Ok ok.. lets get on to this super wonderful recipe.. when i first saw it on Candied Appetite.. i knew these babies are gonna gv me that wow factor.. just look at her pics and her step by step pics.. we all must agree that taking step by step pics is a little time consuming.. i hv to admit i am one of the guilty ones that hardly has any step by step pic in my blog.. dont really like to hold on to my dslr while preparing it.. i wonder if someday i would even wanna do a video tuitorial of my baking adventures? hmmm lets see..

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies
Yield: 12 medium sized whoopie pies or 24 small.

For the Cookies:
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon red food coloring
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup marshmallow fluff
2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 375°. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine the semisweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, in short 30 second blasts. Whisk until smooth. Reserve for later

Whisk the melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, vinegar, vanilla and food coloring in a bowl until combined. In another bowl, sift the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture in three equal batches, mixing each batch completely before adding the next. Stir in the melted chocolate.

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out even mounds of batter onto the prepared baking sheets and smooth the tops with a damp finger. Bake until the cookies spring back when lightly pressed, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely - I pipe my batter onto my mac sheets and smooth the tops with a my damp finger.

Meanwhile, make the filling:
Beat the cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and butter with a mixer until smooth. Beat in the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract. Sandwich a heaping tablespoonful of filling between 2 cookies using a pastry bag; repeat with the remaining cookies and filling. Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving. I personally prefer the whoopie pies cold - i decided to use my own cream cheese filling recipe!

Oh common .. dont u feel like running to ur kitchen and baking em right away?? hahaha.. Enjoy the recipe peeps!

Hi Rima,

Lovely red pies. Just curious, why do these pies have some cracks above them? I remember seeing your chocolate pies sometime back and it had smooth top.

Btw, I would like to ask you,if you would be able to share with me the information on what sort of laundry machine you are using, ie, front load or top load. I come across some of your blog post where you mention you have a lot of laundry to do, especially afer your holiday. How about inner wears do you handwash them or the laundry machine can do it without spoiling them.

I too have loads of laundry to do, but mine is a top load and it does quite good damage to delicate clothes even though I place them into a laundry bag. Thinking of getting a front load machine soon, but only after some reviews/recommendation.

Dzah said...

next time akak turun KL, I want to order this... No, sy xmo buat sendiri... nak yg kak rima buat jugak... huhuhu.
Last week dah buat using the same recipe, tp xtau mana silapnye, the cake tu mcm pahit sikit... mungkin sbb guna dark chocolate instead of semisweet choc. Boleh tau x akak guna choc ape untuk melted choc tuh? Thanx

Rima said...
