    Is there any member here would know of how to make the filling in Whoopie Pies low, low fat? I tried substituting the confectionery sugar with half Splenda, but oops....what a disaster And the Crisco or Margarine I tried using a butter substitute no go...any suggestions or experimenting I could do?

    Omg! I love woopie pies, they are definately my downfall. They are chocolate cake like cookies with a creamy icing like in the middle. I will try to find a good low fat recipe for you.

    Heres a recipe for weight watcher whoopie pies. Of course the nice fattening ones are the best but, this is better on the waist line.


    Whoopie Pies (Weight Watchers)
    18 servings

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
    1 egg white
    1/2 cup low fat 1% milk
    3/4 cup marshmallow spread

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the sugar, shortening and egg white in a medium bown until fluffy and well blended, about 2 minutes. Stir in the flour mixture, then the milk, until just blended.
    Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto large, ungreased baking sheets, making 36 cookies. Bake until top springs back when lightly touched, 5-7 minutes. Cool completely on the sheets on a rack. Spoon 2 teaspoons marshmallow spread on the bottoms of half the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    Per Serving: 119 calories, 3 g total fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 109 mg sodium, 21 g total carbohydrate, 1 g dietary fiber, 1 g protein, 11 mg calcium.

    Enjoy!
