Family Favorite Recipe

YUM YUM....gotta love whoopie pies!

My daughter started to make whoopie pies to sell when she was 9 years old.  She was saving for a horse.  She is now 21, she got a husband, but never a horse :( 
This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Lucy.  I remember going to visit her as a child.  She would ALWAYS make us whoopie pies!  

This same daughter just called asking for this recipe to make for a baby shower she will be attending tomorrow.  Which prompted me to share this family favorite.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
3/4 cups cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup Crisco
1 1/4 cups fluff
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
