This classic American favorite becomes an extraordinary dessert when flavored with aromatic cardamom and pure vanilla.
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Cardamom, Ground
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Organic Vanilla Extract, Pure Madagascar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 cups marshmallow cream
2 teaspoons McCormick Gourmet™ Organic Vanilla Extract, Pure Madagascar
1/3 cup finely chopped salted shelled pistachios
For the Cookies, preheat oven to 350°F. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and cardamom in medium bowl; set aside. Mix buttermilk and vanilla in small bowl.
Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk mixture, beating on low speed after each addition until smooth and scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter, 2 inches apart, onto parchment paper-lined large baking sheets. (Cookies will spread so avoid crowding them on baking sheet.
Bake 8 minutes or until cookies are puffed and spring back when touched, turning baking sheets halfway through baking. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
For the Filling, beat butter, confectioners' sugar, marshmallow cream, vanilla and cardamom in medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.
To assemble the Whoopie Pies, place 1 tablespoon filling on flat side of 1 cookie. Top with a second cookie, pressing gently to spread the filling. Repeat with remaining cookies. Roll edge of cookies in chopped pistachios. Store whoopie pies between layers of wax paper in airtight container in refrigerator up to 5 days.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with Vanilla Cardamom Milk Shake Shooters for an indulgent dessert experience.
(Amount per serving)
The filling is quite sweet. Cake/cookie is delicious. The cardamom flavor is not overwhelming, just adds some extra richness. Be sure to let them cool in the pan til they are set up and parchment or silpat is BIG help, the first pan I didn't do this with came out a bit mishapen but still perfectly edible. Would make the cookie again to experiment with less sweet filling treatments
