aka St. Patty’s day dessert. Well, I have finally learned how to not eat half of the pies while I make them: drink wine while baking. I may have gone a little overboard on the green food coloring, but it is St. Patrick’s day.
The only problem with the wine scenario is that when it comes time for putting the filling into the piping bag and topping the pies, it might get a little messy, especially when said green food coloring is involved.
I always say that presentation is half the battle, but it doesn’t affect the taste.
I used a different book this time. It’s called Whoopie Pies, but for the life of me I can’t find the name of an author. I guess that’s what I get for skulking around the bargain section at Barnes and Nobles.
The filling is simply butter and cream cheese with confectioner’s sugar. It’s a little on the soft side, but I suspect it will harden in the fridge.
This is how my husband decided to celebrate today.
Eat Well and Savor.
