Funfetti Whoopie Pies

This is an old recipe. Well old in the sense that we made them forever ago. But they started my love affair with sunbutter and fluff sandwiches. Hello best invention in the entire universe known to man kind I would gladly eat one of those sandwiches daily.

For the Whoopie Pies:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
White of 1 large egg
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup sprinkles, plus more for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 375. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. Beat butter, shortening and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and egg white and beat until combined. Add half the flour mixture and half of the milk to creamed mixture. Beat at medium speed just until blended. Add remaining half of flour, milk and vanilla. Beat until blended. Fold in sprinkles.
4. Drop heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the cakes begin to crack and are firm to the touch. Cool completely.

For the Marshmallow Filling:
1 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff
1 1/4 cups vegetable shortening
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1. Beat together fluff and vegetable shortening until mixture is smooth and fluffy.
2. Add the confectioners' sugar and the vanilla and beat on low until incorporated. Increase the spead to medium and beat until fluffy, 3 minutes more.

1. Drop a large dollop of filling on the flat side of a cookie, place the other cookie flat side down on top and press slightly so the filling spreads to the edge of the cookie.
2. Roll edges in sprinkles.

I always thought marshmallow was spelled marshmellow. I like it better with an e.

Every time I typed fluffy it turned out fluffly.

Is this not the cutest thing you ever saw?
