Tonight after making a pretty delicious dinner with the help of my slow cooker, I had to take a shower since I was still sweaty from yoga (shower could wait, dinner could not) and so I gave Marc dish duty. After my shower I came out into the dining room and instead of finding him finishing up the dishes, he was on his iPhone… giggling. Or whatever the manly equivalent of giggling is. When I asked what was so funny and why weren’t the dishes done he simply told me, “look at Instagram”. This is what I see, along with the caption: “Just in case the first 10 are dirty…on a related note, Taylor is requesting spatulas for her birthday”
Ha. Ha. Ha. Isn’t my husband a comedian? But seriously, I’m not the only one with a ridiculous amount of spatulas am I? I mean, it’s not like they’re all the same colors…there is some variety between them! If even one person comments that they have 10+ spatulas too, I’ll be happy.
Anyways, moving onto these delightful little sandwich cookies of joy. How perfect are they for Valentine’s Day?! Both the cookies and the frosting are naturally pink from the strawberries and um, I think the name is fitting too…yes? Anyways….
I brought these to a Super Bowl party last night and they were seriously gone before I knew it. It’s good stuff, I’m telling ya! The cookies are cake-like which is very characteristic of whoopie pies and along with the frosting, these cookies are full of strawberry flavor. The original recipe used a merengue based frosting but I oped for a buttercream frosting because when it comes down to it, I’m just a buttercream gal. Plus it’s way easier than whipping egg whites for a merengue frosting, so another reason buttercream wins.
Like I said, these strawberry whoopie pies would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. Whether you bring them in for your co-workers or just make a whole batch for you and your sweetie, I can’t think of a better way to say ‘I love you!”
