If there is food in heaven, I really really REALLY hope these Vanilla Whoopie Pies with Strawberry Cream Filling are there. 🙏 Because I won’t be counting calories.
The whoopie pies come together super quickly, and you can even use a hand mixer. The dough is beautiful. To get perfectly round whoopies, use a medium scoop to scoop out the dough. Then dip your finger in some cold water and gently smooth the top of the dough so there are no peaks or lines from the cookie scoop.

Strawberry Cream Filling (recipe below)
- Preheat oven to 325°. Line an aluminum baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Beat butter and sugar together for 3-4 minutes until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
- Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating for another 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl every 30 seconds.

- Add the buttermilk and mix until almost combined.
- Add the other half of the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
- Use a medium sized scoop to scoop onto the baking sheet.

strawberry cream filling Directions
- In a mixing bowl beat 113g unsalted butter (1/2 cup) until soft and creamy.
- Add 2 cups of powdered sugar and mix on low until combined. Turn up to high speed and beat until smooth and creamy.
- In a blender or food processor, mix 10 strawberries until completely smooth. Strain out the seeds. (I use thawed frozen strawberries, but fresh are great too)
- Add the strawberry juice to the buttercream and beat until smooth, about 8 minutes.
- Add 1/2 cup marshmallow cream and beat for another 30 seconds.
- Spread onto one of the whoopies and top with another whoopie. You can also pipe the frosting on. I used the 1M piping tip.
