Makin' Whoopie...

Sunday, February 13, 2011

I love me some Valentine's Day baking! It's by far my favorite holiday to bake for. Last year I made an awesome play on a strawberry shortcake - it delicious, pink and heart shaped.

This year, since Valentine's falls on a weekday, I decided to make something fun to take to the office....thanks to my friend Serena at Big Apple Nosh, I found this recipe for Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. I made these guys mini so that co-workers can grab a little bite-sized treat when they're passing through the office kitchen.

What do you think about my first whoopie pie adventure (and, for that matter, my first red velvet)? I opted to scoop the batter into a pastry bag and piped them onto my baking sheet, letting me control the size/shape of my cookies. I also used up all of the red food coloring I could find in the kitchen!


Check out Big Apple Nosh for the recipe (and other foodie goodness) and enjoy your Valentine's Day <3.

How cute are those. The first time I made Macarons my boyfriend thought they were mini whoopie pies. Let's say he was quite disappointed. He would be very happy with these.
