Smores whoopie pies- NFL playoff edition

Smores whoopie pies

I figured I would up my treats game with the NFL super wildcard weekend. The Bills win over the Patriots was the best game I ever saw played by a Bills team. Just about everything went right and Josh Allen was flawless. Such a performance deserves a special cookie. So I present the smores whoopie pie – a Graham cracker cookie, fluff filling and melted chocolate on top. Each cookie is 1/4 cup of dough. The final whoopie pie is quite large, so next time I may only use 2 tbs dough for each cookie. Although I don’t expect any complaints at work with XL cookies

A few reminders – let your butter soften on the countertop for 45 minutes to an hour. Scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup. Preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking So your ovem cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients for cookies
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. In a bowl, cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients, including Graham cracker crumbs. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough. Slightly flatten. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. These are kind of hard to tell when they are done, but you don’t want to overcook them in the oven. Cool completely.

  • Filling ingredients
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • Milk

Directions – blend fluff and butter. Mix in powdered sugar. Add a little milk if filling seems too thick. Now for the assembly.

Place a cookie, flatside up
Top with a dollop of filling
Place another cookie, flatside down, on top
Frost with melted chocolate

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day filled with joy. And I hope the Bills win 3 straight games these playoffs!

This magical season for the Bills continued with their first playoff win in 25 years! Was it easy? No! Was it stressful? yes! Did someone yell and scare the dog, over the late fumble that wasn’t? Also yes, but it was not me. The yeller in question did request victory chocolate chip cookies bars, so here they are.
