Mini Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Ingredients

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup organic butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup butter, softened

Preparation

1
In a bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
2
In a large bowl or in the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter for about 30 seconds.
3
Beat in the brown sugar until it is light and fluffy.
4
Mix in the egg and vanilla.
5
Alternately add the flour mix, and buttermilk. I did the flour in thirds, and the buttermilk in half. Mix until just combined.
6
Stir in the food coloring. I have gel food coloring so I used little tiny dabs of that until I reached my desired red. If you are using the food coloring liquid, it takes about a whole full bottle to get the red dark enough.
7
Preheat the oven to 375º F. Line your cookie sheets.
8
I then scooped my batter into a decorating bag and squeezed small circles on to my baking sheet. I made the circles an inch or less in diameter. They don’t spread very much so you can fit a decent amount on one cookie sheet.
9
I baked the mini cookies for 5-7 minutes, then allowed to cool while I made the frosting.
10
To Make the Frosting:
11
Simply beat together the cream cheese, butter, and marshmallow cream until smooth.
12
I filled a decorating bag with one of my favorite tips, and piped the filling onto the cookies and sandwiched them together.
