These Patriotic Whoopie Pies are a delicious and creamy treat for your red, white and blue summer holidays!
These Patriotic Whoopie Pies are delicious and easy thanks to being made with vanilla cake mix. I love making cookies out of cake mixes, my favorite being vanilla! If you remember correctly, not too long ago I made these pretty tasty Cake Mix Cookies and let’s not forget our favorite Cherry Dump Cake!
I am telling you everyone is going to just love these Patriotic Whoopie Pies at any of your summertime BBQs, from the beginning with Memorial Day until the end at Labor Day!
How to Make Patriotic Whoopie Pies
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. The parchment allows your whoopie pies to get a puffier texture.
Mix together your cake mix, butter and eggs.
Divide your batter among 2 bowls. Add a few drops of red food coloring to one bowl, mixing well. Continue adding food coloring until you get your desired shade of red.
Repeat this process for the blue in the other bowl
Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls onto the parchment paper.
Bake 10-12 minutes.
Meanwhile make your whoopie pie frosting, in a large bowl, mix butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until fluffy. Mix in powdered sugar.
Once your whoopie pies are cooked and cooled, pipe icing onto one cookie of one color and then top with a cookie of another cookie. You want to ice the cookies on the flat side of the cookies.
