Using a small cookie scoop, scoop even balls of the cookie dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

You will want to leave about 2 inches between each ball of dough so it has room to expand.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 mins or until the edges begin to brown.

Beat together the fluff and butter until smooth. Add in the confectioners sugar a little at time beating until smooth.

Icing should not be super stiff but fall into a ribbon pattern when you pick your spatula up from the icing.

Use your cookie scooper to add one scoop of icing to the cooled cookies and then roll in the sprinkles.

Some tips and tricks:

  • These sandwiches will mimic an ice cream sandwich if chilled or lightly frozen, without melting.
  • If the icing doesn’t fall in a ribbon pattern, add a teaspoon of water to loosen it up a bit.
  • Avoid a wax coated sprinkle for this dessert. It will make for a better mouth feel.
  • Let’s settle a debate: Are Whoopie Pies Cookies or Cake? They’re a little bit of both! They’re soft and fluffy like a cake, but is like biting into a homemade cookie.
