Cheater Whoopie Pies
2 Chocolate Cake Mixes
2/3 c. Oil
1 pkg Cream Cheese, softened
2 c. Confectioners Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
In a large bowl combine cake mixes, oil and eggs until well mixed. Using a cookie scoop, drop the dough into balls about 2 ” apart on a cookie sheet. Flatten each dough ball. Bake for 12 minutes in a 325 oven that has been preheated.
While the cookies are baking, in a large bowl combine the cream cheese, confectioners sugar, and vanilla. If you’d like you can cut a pure vanilla bean in half and scrape the seeds out and add this in place of the vanilla extract. The little speckles impart a delicious flavor into the filling!
Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and cool them completely on a cooling rack before filling.
Fill with as much filling as you prefer, serve! These are so simple to make!
