Gingerbread Whoopies Pies

Yield : 32 pcs

INGREDIENTS:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg
3/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup buttermilk

Filling:
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2/3 cup cream cheese, softened
5 Tbsp soft butter
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

To make the cakes: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the butter and brown sugar, beating until the mixture is fluffy. Beat in the egg, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl. Add half the dry ingredients and mix to combine, then beat in the molasses, the remaining dry ingredients, and the buttermilk.

Use a rounded teaspoonful to drop the batter onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving at least 1″ between cakes to allow for spread. Bake cakes until puffed and set, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven, and cool on the pans until set enough to move to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Make the filling: Beat together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.

To assemble the cakes, spread a heaping teaspoonful of filling onto the flat side of half the cakes. Top each filled cake with a second, unfilled cake, rounded side up, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
