Ever have one of those hectic days at work that you just can’t wait for the time to make it home, put your feet up and enjoy a nice drink? Well today was one of those days. But what to drink? Well I love Baileys Irish Cream so I poured myself a little glass and thoroughly enjoyed it. This reminded me of this whoopie pie recipe I made with Bayleys in the butter cream which I forgot to post. So I thought it would be perfect to post this now, simply because it has Bayleys in it and because St. Patrick’s Day is coming up this weekend.
So a few weeks ago I went to Michael’s to look for a cake stand and came across this Ice Cream Sandwich Pan which I thought was just adorable and perfect to make large cookies or even whoopie pies. Being the adventurous person that I am, ahem, I went ahead and made these delicious whoopie pies in the pan. Now I only bought one pan, so I tried to put all the batter in the one pan, initially I had intended to make 6 whoopie pies, since there are 12 slots. Well, to my surprise, don’t know why I was surprised, these babies came out pretty huge. If I were to use two of them for whoopie pies I would have ended up with big whopper whoopie pies. Hmm, maybe that would have been something.
What I ended up doing is cutting each piece of cake in half, and made a whoopie pie out of each piece. Yep, I had good intentions but sometimes even the best of us screw up. Well it’s not really a screw up but it wasn’t perfection either. Nonetheless, these whoopie pies were delicious and thoroughly enjoyed.
Anyhow, don’t do as I do, because you’ll end up with some gigantic whoopie pies, and do as I say and make the recipe as it should have been made.
