Football Whoopie Pies


  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350°. Cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, beating well until blended. In a bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Slowly beat in the flour mixture, alternating with milk, until blended. Using a cookie scoop, drop onto greased baking sheets. Then using a toothpick or butter knife to gently create points on either side of the circle, creating the shape of a football. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until firm. Cool on racks then fill with filling, below.

Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 pound (4 cups) confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

With an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Add sugar 1 cup at a time, and then vanilla, mixing until smooth and combined, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. If not using immediately, frosting can be refrigerated up to 3 days in an airtight container. Bring to room temperature again before using.

Fill a piping bag fitting with a star tip with your cream cheese frosting.  Flip one of your Chocolate Whoopie Pies over so the bottom is facing up.  Starting from the perimeter, frost your whoopie pie, working your way in, until the entire circumference is frosted.  Gently press the bottom side of another whoopie pie on top, creating a “sandwich”. Use the remaining cream cheese frosting to pipe football laces onto the top of each whoopie pie.
