Whoopie Pies

Umm the whoopie! They are an ultimate sweet treat and you cannot eat just one or two for that matter. Enjoy!

Whoopie Pies
1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix( Betty Crocker is best)
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

To make the filling: In a saucepan, combine milk and flour and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it forms a thick paste. Let cool.
To make the cakes: Prepare mix as directed on package except using only 3/4 cup of water. Drop batter onto greased cookie sheet (or use parchment paper to line pan) in 2 1/2 to 3 inch circles. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 6-8 minutes.. Let cool.
In a medium bowl, beat sugar and shortening until fluffy. Add vanilla. Add cooled flour mixture and beat until double in volume. Turn the little cakes over on their backs. Spoon a dollop of filling onto half of the little cakes. Place the other half of the cakes on top of the filling to form sandwiches.
