When I made the vanilla whoopie pies yesterday, I also made snickerdoodle whoopie pies. I just didn’t post them because my pictures turned out terrible. It’s not easy taking a pretty picture of something that is almost all brown Besides, these were so yummy, they deserved a post all their own.
My husband loves snickerdoodles and he asked me if I could make a snickerdoodle whoopie pie sometime. Justin rarely makes requests, so I wanted to make these for him. I looked in my books for a recipe, but I couldn’t find one. I figured that a snickerdoodle is basically a sugar cookie coated in cinnamon sugar. So, I could make a vanilla whoopie pie and just sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar for the same effect. I had Justin taste them to make sure they were what he was looking for. Well, he ate 8 pies in a half hour, so I guess they were!
Usually I send most of what a bake with Justin to school to share with his students. But, mid-whoopie pie he turns to me and says “These I am not sharing.” Sorry kids.
Snickerdoodle Whoopie Pies:
1 recipe vanilla whoopie pie cakes
Cinnamon sugar- I just eyeballed it, heavy on the cinnamon (If you’re not into eyeballing it, Martha Stewart uses 1/4 cup sugar with 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon to coat her snickerdoodles)
1 recipe marshmallow filling
Follow the recipe for vanilla whoopie pies, except before baking, sprinkle the top of the batter liberally with cinnamon sugar. Bake according to the recipe.
