Santa Whoopie Pies

Yields 12 cookie pies


  • 1 box brownie mix of choice
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 strawberries


  1. Prepare the brownies according to the box mix instructions. Grease a baking sheet and spread the batter on the sheet. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Cool completely.
  2. Prepare the filling by whipping together all the ingredients.
  3. Remove the tops of the strawberries.
  4. Cut the brownies out into small circles. Spread a dollop of filling on one side of the brownie, then sandwich them together. Add a little more filling to the brownie stack, and stick a strawberry on for a Santa hat. Finish with a little more whipped cream on the tip of the strawberry and enjoy.
