BAKED Sunday Mornings: Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Red Velvet...who doesn't love red velvet? The best cupcake I ever had was a red velvet cupcake. This whoopie pie is very good. The cream cheese frosting goes perfect with the red velvet whoopies. I like that the whoopie pies only have a little bit of red food color in it so that they're a hint of red but not bright red. This recipe is pretty easy to make. I halved the recipe like I usually do. You cream the butter and add the sugars, then add the dry ingredients alternating with the wet ingredients. 15 minutes in the refrigerator while the oven preheats and then you pop these in the oven. Mine took 12 minutes in the oven. I tried to make them smaller but they came out pretty big once baked and with half a recipe, I made 10 cookies, resulting in 5 whoopie pies. I would love if I had one of those special whoopie pie pans to make my whoopies all the same size, but I was able to match these up pretty well. I gave these out to my friends and they liked them. A perfect treat for Valentine's Day (or any time of the year, in my opinion!)

For the recipe, and to see how the other bakers whoopies came out, head on over to  Baked Sunday Mornings. Enjoy!


  1. Yes, these were wonderful! I could definitely make these a Valentine's Day tradition.

  2. I used whoopie pie pans, both mini and regular sized, and next time I will use the scoop!!! The pans did not work really well as the batter just seems to stay put and does not spread to fill the the shapes were not uniform, but the scoopers all made great cookies.

  3. Happy Valentine's Day, Kristin! I agree - these were the perfect treats!
