Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port are my top picks for Whoopie Pie. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. The NV Solera Cream Sherry with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.

NV Solera Cream Sherry

The Solera Cream Sherry has a brilliant amber and deep copper hue. With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.

Instructions

In a bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl or in the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter for about 30 seconds. Beat in the brown sugar until it is light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Alternately add the flour mix, and buttermilk. I did the flour in thirds, and the buttermilk in half. Mix until just combined. Stir in the food coloring. I have gel food coloring so I used little tiny dabs of that until I reached my desired red. If you are using the food coloring liquid, it takes about a whole full bottle to get the red dark enough. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line your cookie sheets. I then scooped my batter into a decorating bag and squeezed small circles on to my baking sheet. I made the circles an inch or less in diameter. They dont spread very much so you can fit a decent amount on one cookie sheet. I baked the mini cookies for 5-7 minutes, then allowed to cool while I made the frosting. To Make the Frosting: Simply beat together the cream cheese, butter, and marshmallow cream until smooth. I filled a decorating bag with one of my favorite tips, and piped the filling onto the cookies and sandwiched them together.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're worried about cholesterol and heart disease, you may have heard you should limit your egg consumption to one egg per day or eat only egg whites. However, new research suggests you might go ahead and eat your whole eggs. It turns out egg yolk contains valuable nutrients (the cartenoids that make it yellow are great for eye health, folic acid is great for brain health, and it has vitamins A, E, D, and K) and dietary cholesterol seems to have little influence on blood cholesterol levels.

  • To increase the protein in this recipe, you might experiment with using yogurt or cottage cheese (blended first to achieve a smooth texture) in place of the cream cheese.

  • Believe it or not, some sources say you can substitute avocado puree for butter when making brownies. Try it and let us know how it turns out!

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • If you need to soften a block of cream cheese before using it, you can unwrap it and heat it in the microwave on high for 10-15 seconds at a time until it is soft enough.

  • If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, just pour a tablespoon of white vinegar into a glass and add enough milk to make one cup. Let sit for about five minutes, and voila, a great buttermilk substitute!

Green Tips

  • Choose free range or organic eggs whenever possible! Even though they are more expensive, eggs are generally cheap to begin with, and eggs from cage-free chickens are worth the extra cost.
