makes 15 pies

1 large egg
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 c sugar
2 c flour
1/2 c unsweetened coaoa
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/4 c milk
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare/grease 2 large baking sheets, set aside.

In a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed, beat the egg and vegetable oil until combined. Gradually beat in the sugar and continue beating until pale yellow in color.

In another bowl, combing the flour, cocoa, soda and salt, whisk to combine. In a measuring cup combine the milk and vanilla.

Add the flour and milk mixtures alternately to the egg mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.

Drop by tablespoons onto the baking sheets. These will spread a lot, so make 6 cakes per sheet, at a time.

Bake for about 5 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched with a finger. Let cool on pans for a minute or 2 to prevent the delicate cookie from crumbling. Remove to wire racks for complete cooling.Continue baking until all dough has been baked.

When cool completely, sandwich the filling between 2 cakes to form the Whoopie Pies.

1/2 c (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 c confectioners sugar
1 c Marshmallow Fluff
1 t vanilla

In a medium size bowl, beat butter and sugar together. Add Marshmallow Fluff and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.
