Red White and Blue Whoopie Pies

Servings 14 sandwich cookies


  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 small (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • Red and Blue food coloring (I used Wilton's gel food colorings)
  • Vanilla Cool Whip Frosting (comes in a 10.6oz tub) *See Notes for alternative
  • Red, white, and blue sprinkles (if desired)


  • In a large bowl combine cake mix and vanilla pudding.
  • Using a hand mixer, blend in softened butter and large eggs until combined.
  • Divide the batter in half. Color one half blue, and the other half red, mixing until one solid color (no streaks).
  • With a #50 cookie scoop, spoon balls of cookie dough on a silicone mat lined baking sheet about an inch apart.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are set and the tops are wrinkled. Allow cookies to cool completely.
  • Fill a plastic sandwich bag with some Vanilla Cool Whip Frosting, zip it shut, cut off one corner and pipe the frosting on the bottom of one cookie. Top with another cookie in the opposite color so you have a red cookie, a white frosting center, and a blue cookie. Sprinkle edges of the frosting with Red White and Blue Sprinkles. Repeat with remaining cookies. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
