Here a new play on a classic dessert… the Whoop Ass Pie for game day. Go Seahawks! Not a Seahawks fan? Here’s the recipe so you can adjust to your team colors… if you must.
Game Day Whoop Ass Pies
- 1/2 cup butter (or 1 stick), softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 1/4 cups flour
- 1 recipe of Light & Fluffy Filling (recipe below)
- 2 food colorings in your team colors
- Candy sprinkles (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F
Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl on high speed until light & fluffy. Turn speed to low and add wet ingredients. After wet ingredients are combined with butter mixture, add wet ingredients.
Split batter in half. Stir one food coloring for your team colors into batter very well, and then the second color into rest of batter.
Line baking sheets with parchment papers.
For large whoopie pies, use an ice cream scoop to make pies. For smaller ones, use a cookie scoop. Drop scoops onto baking sheets. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops of pies bounce back when lightly touched.
After pies have cooled, turn upside down and use a decorating bag to cover with filling. Place second pie of opposing color (See what I did there?) on top of filling to sandwich pies together. If desired, roll sides into pretty sprinkles.
Light & Fluffy Filling
- 1 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla… or mint, or almond, or maple (you get the idea)
Whisk milk & flour together in a saucepan. Place over medium high heat and watch closely. Continue whisking until thick. Cook for about one minute while whisking. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for about 15 minutes.
Place butter & sugar in mixer on high speed until light & fluffy. After flour & milk mixture has cooled to almost room temp, add to mixer and whip until light & fluffy. It should look almost like whipped cream.
Note: For a very white filling you can substitute butter with white shortening. Shortening just won’t taste nearly as lovely.
Super fun to serve upon matching cupcake liners placed upside down and with a sign reading “Whoop Ass Pies”. And, preferably, when your team is winning.
