  • 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

  • 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.
