Whoopie Pies (or Homemade Oreo Cakesters)

These are sooooooo good. All the kids have asked if they could have these instead of cake for their birthdays.You might regret making these if you are trying to watch what you eat. I had trouble just eating one.

Whoopie Pies
1/2 stick of butter
4 T. criso
1 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 2/3 c. flour
2/3 c. cocoa
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 c. marshmallow fluff
1 1/4 c. crisco
1 c. powdered sugar
1 T. vanilla
Preheat oven to 375. Beat the crisco, butter and sugar for 3 or 4 minutes until fluffy. Then beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt. Beat until mixed. Then beat in the milk. Using a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop, drop on to parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven. (If you don't have a cookie scoop you should get one, but in the meantime you can just use an actual tablespoon.) Remove from oven. Carefully lift the paper with the cookies on it off the pan and let cool. After they are cool, carefully peel each cookie off the parchment and fill. To make the filling, beat the crisco and sugar first. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and beat until fluffy.
