Red Velvet Whooping Love
Annie of the fab foodie blog Annie's Eats says that if there is one recipe she'd recommend for Valentine's Day, it's gotta be this one for red velvet whoopie pies. And we agree -- the picture alone puts up a darn good argument!
Easily made with Annie's cookie recipe, red food coloring, and cream cheese frosting, Annie admits that she had to give these away quickly after they were made because she kept finding excuses to eat them for breakfast. For whoopie pie first-timers, she also recommends piping the frosting onto the cookies, rather than spreading it with a knife as it gives the cookie sandwich a cleaner look and saves a little bit of kitchen cleanup. Check out the full post for Annie's great pictorial and recipe.
