whoopie pies

Guinness and Irish Cream! The perfect combination! Throw chocolate in there, and WOW! Life doesn’t get much better! Perfect for a great dessert, especially for St. Patrick’s Day.  I was surprised at how easy these were to make.  They are (were) so delicious, as they have disappeared quite fast! 🙂

This recipe has been adapted from Baking With Whiskey

For the Cookie:

  • 1 cup Guinness beer
  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  cups sugar
  • 1½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup sour cream

For the Irish Cream Filling:

  •  8 ounces of cream cheese,  room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • ¼-½ cup of Irish Cream, Bailey’s, Molly’s, or Carolan’s are great choices.

Here’s what you do:

To make the cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
  2. Combine Guinness and butter in saucepan and heat until butter is melted. Bring to simmer, then add in cocoa powder and whisk until smooth. Let cool completely.
  3. Mix sour cream and eggs until fully combined, then add in cooled Guinness mixture. Sift dry ingredients together, then fold into batter.
  4. Chill for about ten minutes.
  5. Scoop batter onto a lined cookie sheets with several inches between each cookie. (You can use whatever size scoop you want, depending on how big or small you want the Whoopie Pies to be. I personally used a 1 ounce scoop for mine.)
  6. Bake 10-13 minutes.

To make the Irish Cream Filling:

  1. Beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  2. Gradually add the sifted powdered sugar and mix until smooth and fluffy.
  3. Gradually add the Irish Cream until filling is of desired consistency.

To assemble:
