I do so hope that you won't laugh too much at what you see here today, and that you won't take one look and decide these aren't for you, coz if you do you will be missing out on something really special. These cookies are fabulously delicious. Presentation has never been my strong point . . . and these just prove my point!
These are supposed to have pretty little snowflakes piped on top, but as you can see I didn't quite pull it off! My icing kept running off of the whoopies. With my sore arm, I tried to take a shortcut and used a ready made piping icing . . . supposed to be crystal white.
I thought to myself, oh that will be so pretty . . . all sparkly just like ice crystals. FAIL!
So then I thought . . . I'll dust them with a bit of icing sugar which will highlight the snowflake pattern. MEGA FAIL!
So what I ended up with is really messy looking biscuit/cookies that taste incredibly delicious. Oh well, you can't be good at everything I guess! Dare I show you what they should like like? Oh go on!
I am not ashamed . . . well, not that much. Do try these. They are delicious. Just don't take any shortcuts on the piped icing. Make it from scratch. Adapted from a recipe in the cookbook entitled, A Year Full of Recipes by Love Food. (I could kick myself when things like this happen.)
*Snowflake Whoopie Pies*Makes approx. 14 double cookies
Todd loved these even if they weren't going to be winning any beauty contests! Nobody can say I pretend to be anything I am not, with me you get the real thing . . . warts and all!
