Valentine's Day Whoopie Pies


     Want to make your significant other a tasty treat for Valentine's Day? These heart shaped, red velvet whoopie pies are sure to be a hit.

  1 package red velvet cake mix
  3 large eggs
  3/4 cup water
  1/2 cup vegetable oil
  1 (oz) package cream cheese, softened
  1 (15oz) container vanilla frosting


  Heat Oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  Beat cake mix, eggs, water and oil in a large bowl. *Note: Because you have less liquid than normal, you need to be careful that you get all of the lumps out. Otherwise, you'll have crunchy whoopie pies.

  Place heart shaped cookie cutter on lined cookie sheet. Spoon 1/2 tbs cake batter into the cookie cutter. Using a spoon, evenly distribute the batter throughout the cookie cutter. Remove the cookie cutter and repeat until your cookie sheet is full. It is important that you lift the cookie cutter straight up, or your batter will be pushed to the side. *Note: You could just spoon the batter onto the cookie sheet and spread it out (since we're going to cut the cooked cakes with the cookie cutter). I use the cookie cutter so that I know that I haven't made the circles smaller than my cookie cutter. 

  Bake for 7 - 9 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick comes out dry. Allow cakes to cool for 2 minutes. Use cookie cutter and cut hearts out of your cakes.

  Move heart shaped cakes to a cooling rack. Allow them to cool completely.

  Now it's time to make the filling. In a medium bowl, whip softened cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add frosting. Mix until blended.

  Place half pies flat side up. Spread 1 tbs filling. Top with second half pie, rounded side up. Press gently to spread filling. *Baker's tip: Use a cake decorating bag to quickly and easily fill your pies.

  Chill, uncovered, until ready to serve.
