Whoopie Pies

Makes six

For the Pies:
115g soft butter
200g brown sugar
1 egg 5ml vanilla essence
225ml buttermilk
60g cocoa powder
5g bicarbonate of soda
190g plain flour

For the Filling:
450g Philadelphia cream cheese
150g butter
300g sifted icing sugar
10ml vanilla essence

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas mark 6 and prepare baking trays with greaseproof paper. Cream the butter and sugar together, then beat in the egg. Add the vanilla essence to the buttermilk. Sift the cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and flour together twice to remove any impurities. Fold half the flour in to the creamed butter mix, followed by half the buttermilk. Then fold in the rest of the flour, followed by the remaining buttermilk, until the mix is all combined. Spoon out the batter using a dessert spoon on to the baking trays. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
2. While they bake, make the frosting by creaming the butter and icing sugar together, then adding the cream cheese and vanilla essence until the icing is smooth.
3. Take the whoopies out of the oven, allow to stand for 5 minutes, then remove from the paper. Once cooled, spread with cream cheese frosting and sandwich together.
