Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Prairie Farms whole milk
  • 1 Tsp Distilled Vinegar
  • 2 1/4 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 Tsp ground ginger
  • 1 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/2 Cup Prairie Farms Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1/4 Cup Brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 Cup molasses

Filling

  • 1/2 Cup Prairie Farms Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 2 Ounces Prairie Farms cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Cups marshmallow cream
  • 1-3 Tbsp Prairie Farms Whole Milk (optional)

Pair with

  • 1 Cup Prairie Farms 2% reduced fat milk

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet. In a bowl or liquid measuring cup combine 1/2 cup milk and vinegar and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, and ground cloves.
  • In a large bowl cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Mix in molasses and milk and vinegar mixture.
  • Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop scoops of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet. Leave 2 inches between each cookie dough scoop. Bake until cookies are puffy and set, about 10-14 minutes. Repeat with remaining cookie dough and allow cookies to cool completely.
  • Prepare the filling by creaming together butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and mix on high speed for 4-5 minutes. Mix in vanilla, ground cinnamon, and marshmallow cream. If needed to make a smooth and fluffy consistency, mix in 1-3 tablespoons milk.
  • Make whoopie pies by spreading filling between two cookies. Serve immediately or store refrigerated in airtight container up to 3 days. Allow to come to room temperature before serving. Serve with glass of milk.
