I have been reading your emails for over 2 years now and find them fun and interesting. I always look forward to seeing what your new monthly recipe will be….I have tried several and they were all good!!
I also own a small boutique and know how difficult it is to keep your emails interesting and fun. “Well done!!” sums it all up.

This recipe says to beat butter, peanut butter and powdered sugar for the filling, but in the list of filling ingredients butter is not listed. I was wondering how much butter to use. I think something might have been left out. Thanks.

Hi Debbie…Oops!!! You are SO RIGHT! I did make an error…It should read “Beat peanut butter, marshmallow cream and powdered sugar…” So sorry for any confusion! My mistake! Hope you enjoy these yummy Whoppie Pies! Thank you for blogging with us! Have a great week! ~Vicki

Hi Joan… I’m pretty sure it would be about a ka-zillion calories! This would have to be an “at your own risk” kind of recipe…so make up a batch…take them somewhere where there’s a crowd and make sure you don’t bring any home! (That is always my plan at least!) So sorry, but I don’t have that information for you…some things we just shouldn’t be allowed to know! 🙂 Thank you so much for reading our blog! I will have to check in to some kind of program that supplies that information. Have a wonderful week!

I always use my Kitchen Aid mixer to beat, mix, blend everything…the exception would be like folding in whipped egg whites, or something very sensitive like that. Enjoy! Vicki
