Celebrating St-Patricks Day with an edible rainbow

Rainbow desserts are so popular what better occasion to make one than on St-Patricks day. 

I've been meaning to test out the following products and thought this would be the perfect occasion.



Here is the complete step-by-step video tutorial to create these adorable Rainbow Whoopie Pies yourself.


This is the buttercream that I used to fill the mini whoopee pies.




Ingredients Whoopie Pies

1 c unsalted butter, room temperature
1 ½ c sugar
3 large eggs
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
4 ½ c unbleached all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp salt
1 Tbs baking powder
1 ¼ c milk

instructions
  1. For the whoopie pies: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray cake pan with baking spray
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs & vanilla, until well combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder.Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.Mix until just combined.
  4. Drop by scoopfuls (I use an ice-cream scoop) onto prepared baking sheets, leaving a few inches between cookie dough.Bake until the tops are springy and just barely dry, 7-11 minutes depending on the size.Watch carefully to keep from browning.Cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

I love these easy Easter egg cookies embellished with a simple bow, I made these cookies last year but due to some technical issues I didn't get to publish the video. You can see the Easter party by clicking here.



I'm not sure exactly how I come up with my crazy ideas but I think you might enjoy this cookie experiment where I use a pottery technique to make some Easter egg cookies.
