because I was especially exhausted. I'm blaming the unusual heat we've been having. If not that, then it's because my daughter is working on 2 more teeth. She wakes up crying every so often, and goes back to sleep.
Poor baby. Again at 5 this morning she was crying...I got all the way to her room and waited, and lo and behold, she stopped. Yea! I eagerly went back to bed. The sheets never felt so good. I've never loved sleep as much as I do now after having a baby. It really makes you appreciate it.
Well, we celebrated our 6th Wedding Anniversary Saturday. I made the Whoopie Pies! I'm so glad they turned out. I can cook, but I'm the first to say that baking is not my strong point.
1/2 cup Crisco
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks (save whites for filling)
5 tablespoons cocoa
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
Cream Crisco and sugar together. Add other ingredients. Use a piping bag to squeeze out the batter into about 2” circles.
Directions:Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees.
Now make the filling...
1 Cup of Crisco
4 Cups of Confectioners Sugar
4 Eggs Whites
Pinch of salt
2 Tsp. Vanilla
Beat all Ingredients until creamy, about 2-3 Minutes. Cool the cookies, and then spoon this frosting on. Add another cookies on top. Your Finished! Now go give your husband some whoopie...whoopie pie,,uh cookie!
