Fair Trade Gingerbread Whoopie Pies & Giveaway

Today I bring to you my last recipe of 2012 for Green Mountain Coffee. It features one of my favorite holiday flavors, Fair Trade Gingerbread Coffee.

I don’t know what took me so long to try my hand at whoopie pies, but I watched with envy as my fellow food bloggers around the web made them with ease, posting every flavor under the sun. Let me tell you, boys and girls: the only thing holding me back, was ME.

Whoopie pies have to be one of the easiest things to make. You don’t need a special pan, despite pan makers’ insistence that you do. My first time making these bad boys, I was left with perfect, pillowy round cookies. This is ensured by the use of a cookie scoop to dole out the dough, so that’s the only advice I’ll give.

You can find my recipe for Fair Trade Gingerbread Whoopie Pies on Green Mountain Coffee’s blog today. Go check it out, but then Come right back here and enter to win your own Fair Trade Gingerbread Coffee, and other goodies from Green Mountain Coffee!

    I follow you on Facebook and I am very excited about the molasses cookies. They look like my Grandmother’s molasses cookies which I have tried to make for years and they always turned out to be gingersnaps!
