Whoopie pie filling

Sunnidae | Feb 13, 2008 09:08 AM

Hi everyone!

For a valentine's treat I'm going to be making red velvet whoopie pies (my first time so wish me luck). I understand that traditionally, whoopie pies have more of a fluffy creme filling, but I've been hankering for a slightly more cream-cheese experience. I came across this recipe, which also calls for marscapone cheese. While that would be fabulous, I'm afraid I may not be able to track it down in time - if I want to substitute something, should I just use more cream cheese instead? Will I be overly compromising the flavor?

Here's the recipe:

Mascarpone Cream Cheese Filling
4 oz mascarpone cheese, room temperature
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract (vanilla paste is even better)
1 tbsp milk
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

Also, please let me know if you have alternate filling recipes that you would suggest instead! Thanks so much!
