Cooking Time - Textminutes


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup organic milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F degrees.  Line two cookie sheets with foil or parchment paper.

  2. Sift flour, salt, soda, and cocoa together in a mixing bowl. With machine running on low, add sugar, then butter until well mixed. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and mix well 1 minute, making sure not to overbeat. 

  3. Use a small ice cream scoop (size #2) to dip batter onto cookie sheets, leaving room between for cookies to spread when baking. Bake about 10 minutes, turning bake pans front to back halfway through the baking time. Cool in the pans set on wire racks until completely cooled.

  4. While cookies bake, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add marshmallow fluff and mix well, scraping bottom and sides of the bowl twice.

  5. When cookies are cool, carefully lift off the cookie sheet with a wide spatula and spread the bottom of a cookie with about 1 tablespoon of the filling, then press another cookie against the filling to make a sandwich.  Repeat with remaining cookies and filling.

I've never met a Whoopi Pie I didn't like ! This version is very tasty, it's more of Maine style Pie than Amish. The Amish version is made with shortening and the Maine is made with marshmallow. Just a matter of preference.

My college roommate loved to make Whoopie Pies! They were delicious!

I've always wondered...are whoopie pies the same as moon pies and if so, how do they get the different flavors? These pies look tempting and you know if it's Amish, it's got to be worth every bite. I'd have to do it the hard way and make some homemade fluff first and I bet if it was flavored fluff that would delicious too. How would you store these? Can they be frozen?

I've never tried whoopie pie before, but I wasn't a huge fan of the "crunchy" filling. It would have been a lot better with a smoother texture.

Gotta love a homemade version of a classic whoopie pie! I thought the filling was just right when I made it.

The cookie part was good, but the filling was too "crunchy" from the raw sugar. The filling could be processed in a high-power food processor or blender prior to filling the cookies to make it a more pleasant texture.

The filling was far too crunchy since the sugar didn't dissolve, and I'm guessing it's because of the sugar ratios in the filling. Next time, I will find a different filling recipe to use, since the chocolate part was nice.

I had never had a whoopie pie before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The chocolate cake part was nice and moist, but the filling was a bit too granulated/sweet for my taste.

I did not like that the filling was crunchy. Next time I will use powdered sugar.

OMG these are so good! I love the little bit of crunch that the raw sugar provides, both in the cookie and in the frosting, and the rich cocoa flavor can't be beat. It's such a simple recipe, I'm going to have to make it a regular at home. P.S. I'm guessing Amish folks might not use jar marshmallow creme. :O)

The chocolate cake part was super tasty, but I'd try a different frosting recipe. I like my whoopie pie filing to be creamy and fluffy, but the frosting for this recipe was too sugary

These are probably good, but I doubt the Amish use organic milk.

Hello ckfmaine, This particular recipe calls for the whole jar of marshmallow. Thanks!

How much marshmallow? 1/2 jar or whole jar? Or am I missing something here?

@debreb Oh my gosh! Thank you for pointing this out, that was supposed to be 4 Tablespoons of butter, not 4 quarts. That would have been something huh? We've fixed the recipe to reflect correct totals. Thank you!

4 quarts of butter??? for real??
