How to make Snowflake Whoopee Pies

  • Heat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens) Gas 5.
  • Line 2-3 baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, beat in the egg until smooth then stir in all the flour and milk to make a soft thick mixture.
  • Using an ice cream scoop place spoonfuls well spaced apart and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and just firm to the touch.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing to a tray to cool.

To make the filling

  • Beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla together until smooth, adding a drop of boiling water if necessary.
  • Use the butter cream to sandwich the whoopee’s together.

To make the icing

  • mix the icing sugar with 2 tsp of water to make very thick icing and drizzle it over the whoopee’s.
  • Dust a work surface and thinly roll out the ready to roll icing.
  • Use a snowflake cutter to cut out little snowflakes and place on top of the whoopee’s with edible silver balls.
