How to Make Whoopie Pies
How do you make perfectly shaped whoopie pies? A simple kitchen tool is key to the cute shape -- we'll show you the technique!
-Ever wonder how to get those perfectly shaped whoopie pies at home? It's no problem with the right secret. Here's the scoop. Using an ice cream scoop to portion and shape the dough delivers a uniform cookie for both the top and the bottom. That perfectly brown shape is critical for a good-looking whoopie pie. After scooping the dough, drop it into mounds on the cookie sheets, but whatever you do, don't spread or push the mounds down. As the dough bakes, it will naturally settle into the classic round shape of a whoopie pie. Now, here's a little tip that we especially like. The scoops technically called dishers come in different sizes based on the number of ounces they hold. Go kid friendly and make many whoopies by using a super small disher. And actually, these aren't just for kids.
