Half-sized Whoopie Pies

So I spent a while trying to decide what would be the first thing I should make in my new KitchenAid. I knew I wanted to make something that required some sort of icing so I could put it’s whipping power to the test! The weekend before my KA arrived, we took a trip to Segovia and I discovered this great store called “CASA” (HOUSE) and I tried to limit myself to only buying one or two things (because I could have gone crazy in there!!). I saw a whoopie pie pan and thought, that’s it!!! I’ll find a whoopie pie recipe to use as my first recipe in the new KitchenAid! In hindsight I probably should have stuck to a recipe I already knew and trusted… I had to doctor this recipe as I went! But really the recipe didn’t matter, I still had a blast using my KA for the first time!

Soooo once I got all the necessary ingredients together I started whipping up the batter for the chocolate cakey-cookie part…..

Yum!!

I added the last few necessary ingredients and started using the big ice cream scoop (that has barely ever been used for actual ice cream scooping to be honest) and started measuring out the batter onto my new whoopie pie pan.

They turned out pretty well… Although not as flat as I would have liked…

Now, I must say that traditionally whoopie pies are two cakey-cookies put together sandwich style with cream in the middle… But sandwich cookies are usually too much for me. I for one would always prefer 2 smaller cookies over just 1 big one…. So when I realized just how massive they would turn out to be sandwich style, I decided to put the cream on top of each cookie instead of in the middle of two cookies.

I even made a chocolate cream version for us chocolate (with even more chocolate) fans out there!

Looking forward to sharing my 2nd KA story! I’ve been using most of my free time to use my KitchenAid instead of updating you all on my blog! I hope to share more recipes, pics, and tips soon!
