Red Velvet Whoopie Pies (Heart Shaped)

A whoopie pie is a cross between a cake and a cookie. It is also called the black moon, gob or bob. It is the official treat of Maine in the US. Whoopie pie can also be made from Oreo cookies and dubbed as “black and white”. It is commonly filled with cream cheese but other variations include using fruit flavors like blueberry.

This recipe is perfect for Valentine’s Day, or simply as a gift to a loved one. Most pies are vibrant red and filled with delicious cream cheese filling. These pies are ready in 15 minutes.
