Up here in Maine - well, it might be a New England thing, but whatever - we have these treats called Whoopie Pies. They're basically 2 cakey "cookies" sandwiched with overly sweet icing, and no self-respecting diner, gas station, or bake sale would be caught dead without them. The problem, of course, is that a full-size Pie weighs almost a pound, has roughly 900 calories and 54 grams of fat - and I'm not even exaggerating!
My dad found a recipe in the latest Prevention - lightened up and made a much more reasonable size, IBSers can safely enjoy them too. I'm a little "eh" about the marshmallow filling - look in the recipe index for Seven Minute Frosting, which would be a good substitute.
Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 5 min
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup IBS-safe margarine, softened
1 egg white
1/2 cup reduced fat soy milk
3/4 cup marshmallow creme (Fluff)
Preheat oven to 425.
In medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
In large bowl, combine sugar, margarine, and egg white. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat 2 minutes or until fluffy. Stir in flour mixture, then milk, until just blended.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto large ungreased cookie sheets to make 32 cookies. Bake 5 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.
Place baking sheets on racks to cool completely. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of the marshmallow on bottoms of 16 cookies. Top with remaining 16 cookies.
Makes 16. Per pie: 97 cal, 3g fat.
