Ingredients

3 cups sugar

1 cup butter

4 eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

6 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 tablespoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups milk

Filling, recipe follows

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, or preheat a convection oven to 315 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the sugar, butter, and eggs together until well combined. Add the oil and vanilla and beat again.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Add half of the dry mixture to the egg mixture and beat or stir to blend. Add 1 1/2 cups milk and beat again. Add the remaining dry mixture and beat until incorporated. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk and beat until blended.
  4. With a large spoon, scoop out 32 circles of batter onto a baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool.
  5. Spread filling onto 16 circles and place remaining circles on top, to make 16 Whoopie Pies.

Filling:

  1. 1 1/2 cups shortening
  2. 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  3. 1 1/3 cups marshmallow topping
  4. Dash salt
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk
  7. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine all ingredients except the milk and beat well. Add just enough milk to achieve a creamy consistency. Spread filling across cooled cookie circles.
