Whoopie Pie Wednesday:Apple Cider

I try and map out my whoopie pies based on the plans I have, who I may see and taste preferences. One of my friends is an apple cider junkie. I, on the other hand, am not. I had played around w/how I may create one and was still slightly befuddled, when by happenstance, I was checking out at Target and saw a box of apple cider mix and there was my answer. I will not pretend they were my favorite, but I liked them more than I had anticipated. Which, in my book is a plus!


Ingredients
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup veggie oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
4 packets apple cider mix
1 packet cheesecake pudding
1 cup whipping cream
4-6 oz cream cheese softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Directions
Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, water & two packets of apple cider mix in bowl.   
Drop by tbsp onto lined cookie sheet 
Bake 8-9 minutes

Cool on pan 5 minutes, move to wire rack and cool 15 more minutes

Beat softened cream cheese on low for a min or until fluffy, add dry pudding packet 2 packets of apple cider mix & two tbsp of whipping cream, beat on low till pudding is fully incorporated into cream cheese and add remaining whipping cream, turn speed to high and beat until stiff peaks form. Let set in fridge for at least an hour before frosting. 

Take one cookie and place a tablespoon or so of frosting in the center.  Press another cookie on top.

Perhaps you can enjoy these with an Apple Cider Mimosa, or next week I'll have the recipe for an apple cider sangria.

and the text from my friend that is a cider junkie went something like this
"Oh myyyyy goodnessss, heaven in my mouth, can I live w/you?"
I think she approved;)

Tomorrow is Thirsty Thursday...
