Baked: Brown Sugar Oatmeal Whoopie Pies with Maple Marshmallow Filling

The husband is on his second (at least) holiday party of the year.  So, he got the wintermint cake and these whoopie pies.  Ok, I will admit, that even though the recipe says in bold print 2 different times NOT to use imitation maple extract...I used it....  it was all that I could find and I had 2 containers left over from a cinnamon roll bake off 3 years ago...so, alas, I did not follow the recipe 100%.

That being said, these were not bad.  I have an aversion to maple syrup in general, especially the fake kinds.  So, after eating one of these to see what they tasted like, I had enough.  The cookie part was quite good - who can go wrong with 2 cups of brown sugar?! - but the filling was quite fake maple-y tasting.

He took them to work, and like a good husband, came back with only one left for himself for dessert after dinner  :)  They went over really well, he said.  And I am happy to have them out of the house as I have 16 more recipes to make in 16 days!

Oh and there was leftover filling, so I popped them in the oven at 250F for an hour and wala! Meringues!  :)  Husband likes meringues. This recipe was a win win for him.

59 DONE.  16 remain.   sooooo close!  This weekend is going to be a cookie baking frenzy!
