Oatmeal whoopie pies with cherry-cream cheese filling
But it's soooo darn good and the pink colored filling looks pretty , isn't it ?! ....
The cinnamon flavored cakey cookies tastes simply yummy ....
And don't let me start about the filling ....
I never thought making whoopie pies could be this easy .....
The dough didn't spread that much and I should have flatten the top of the dough before baking it , to have a much more even top pffft .....
I used lard instead of shortening , maybe that contributes to a more compact and thick cookies ....
That said , should I say yummy , again ?! lol
I made half of the recipe
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup / 56 grams unsalted butter , softened
scant 2 tablespoon lard
scant 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoon boiling water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
generous 1 cup quick oats
* Preheat oven to 350°C / 180°F .
* Cream the first 3 ingredients ; add the egg and mix . Add in salt , cinnamon and baking powder , mix . Combine baking soda and boiling water then add to the bowl and stir until combine ; add flour and oatmeal and mix well .
* Scoop about a rounded heaping teaspoon of dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes , I baked mine for 11 minutes .
For the quick and easy cherry-cream cheese filling :
* Combine 90 grams ( because that's all have ) cream cheese , about 1/3 cup of homemade cherry sauce ( with cherry pieces ) and 1 1/2 tablespoons icing sugar in a bowl and beat until smooth ( though mine's not that smooth :D ) . Put a large dollop of the filling into the flat side of one cooled cakey cookies , top with a second piece and press gently ; repeat with the rest .

Yum! Yum! Yum! Looks and sounds delicious! I have not baked with lard before! Oats whoopie pies must be really fragrant, I love oats in baked goods rather than eating them as porridge! And the filling, already have me drooling, with a spoon in my hand, ready to dig in!!ReplyDelete

Wow!! I love the look of your whoopie pies! They don't have to be smooth and rounded. Oatmeal and cherry sounds amazing! And.... lard?? Be still my beating heart. I have the opposite problem though, mine are too flat.ReplyDelete
Cherries and cream cheese sound like a divine combination. I like the fact you included oats for a healthier Whoopie Pie.ReplyDelete
