Peeps Whoopie Pies

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

For my third offering for #EasterRecipes, I am happy to share a version of whoopie pies I thought of making after seeing Oreos stuffed with Peeps at the grocery store. For my offering, I wanted to make some sort of carrot cake cookies and then work on getting the Peeps in there. It has turned out far easier than I expected.  I’ve seen whoopie pies made with marshmallow fluff that you can spread a concoction in there and it has a smoother look, but I like the rustic homemade look of these, plus they have the full flavor of Peeps. They go with the spiced cookies very well, and do have a bit of carrot inside. I am pretty sure the kids are going to love these! And maybe a grownup or three as well.

Be sure to scroll down and check out the other #EasterWeek recipes below the recipe printout. We are growing quite a collection of goodies with new ones added each day.
