Everyday with Kayla Kay

Amanda has asked me to do some blogs about recipe's that we love or just some fun new things that i have tried. i am trying to find some good, new recipe's that i can use in my every day life, i have tried to do a new recipe every week. i l hope you enjoy the posts. Thanks sis for letting me do this.

Whoopie Pies

I love to make homemade whoopie pie. i have tried many different recipe's but this seems to be the favorite with my friends, family and me too. Give it a try and let me know what you think. i guarantee that whomever you serve this to will not mind the experiment. : )

Whoopie pies recipe

- 3 3/4 c. Flour

- 2 c. Sugar

- 2 tsp. baking soda

- 1 tsp. salt

- 6 TB- vinegar

- 3/4 c. oil

-2 tsp. vanilla

- 2 c. water

- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl ( no need to separate the liquid and the dry). Mix on medium speed until batter is smooth, no lumps.

- Put 1/4 c. ( or whatever size you want, feel free to experiment) batter on greased cookie sheet ( i can usually get 6 patty like disks on each sheet) and bake for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

- Cool completely on a wire rack.

Boiled Frosting Filling

Now many of my relatives and friends hate frosting, but i have yet to meet anyone who doesn't like this frosting.

7 1/2 TB. Flour

1 1/2 c. milk

- Mix together in saucepan over high heat. Stir continuously until mixture is very thick. Cool completely.

in separate mixing bowl combine:

1 1/2 c. Soft butter

1 1/2 c. Sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Beat together, then add cooled flour/milk mixture and beat for 5 minutes until very fluffy

Last of all assemble your whoopie pies. Finally the best part of all, sampling your hard work.
