Is it a cookie? Is it a cake? Or is it a pie? Who cares how you call it as long as the whoopie pie has the best of everything? The dough is vanilla-flavored, with a thick and delicious crust of chocolate. The filling is creamy, made of cheese and more vanilla, but it also has a nice crunch to it thanks to the walnuts! Make sure to make a large batch, because these whoopie pies tend to fly off the plate!

Ingredients Needed for Chocolate-Glazed Whoopie Pies

    For the dough:

    1 ½ cups of flour
    6 eggs
    ⅔ cup sugar
    1 teaspoon baking powder

    For the cream cheese:

    ⅔ cup cream cheese
    1 egg yolk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    For the chocolate glaze:

    4 ounces of chocolate
    1 ounce walnut, chopped
    powdered sugar
    lime zest
    orange zest

How to Make Chocolate-Glazed Whoopie Pies

  1. Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, and baking powder into the mixer bowl.
  3. Crack the eggs over the flour. Set your mixer over medium speed, and mix the dough for 4-5 minutes, until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency.
  4. Pour the mixture into a round cake tin, approximately 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter.
  5. Slide the tray into the oven and bake it for 40 minutes.
  6. Use 1 cooking ring, approximately 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter, to take out 3 round shapes out of the cake dough. Slice each one of them through the middle to make room for the filling.
  7. As for the filling, place the cream cheese in a small bowl. Add the egg yolk, vanilla extract, and mix until the ingredients combine in a smooth cream.
  8. Heat a saucepan over medium heat, fill about half of it with water, and bring it to a boil. Cover it with a bowl. Break the chocolate and add it in the bowl. Mix with a spatula until it melts.
  9. Spread about 1-2 tablespoons of cream cheese mixture between two sides of dough to glue them together. Also, add a few chopped walnuts.
  10. Use the rest of the ingredients to make 2 more whoopie pies.
  11. Top with melted chocolate and let them rest for one hour, in order for the crust to form.
  12. Serve them with powdered sugar, lemon and lime zest!
