- Once the straeberry sauce is cold. Mix about 2 tablespoons of the sauce into the frosting.

You want your strawberry whoopie pies recipe dough to be pretty thick like a cookie dough would normally be. This won’t be poured like a cake batter, but dropped like a cookie. If you want to make sure you get each pie identical in size, you can easily use an ice cream scoop to put your dough onto the baking sheets. I also line my baking sheets with a silicone baking mat to prevent sticking. These are perfect for cleanup!
This semi-homemade strawberry whoopie pies recipe is sure to be a favorite for everyone in your family! You can easily adapt this by using a chocolate frosting as the filling for a more decadent treat!
