It’s time to bake this holiday season with these Holiday Sugar Cookie Whoopie Pies!
This is a sponsored post from General Mills and The Coca-Cola Company; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Are you getting ready for the holiday season? I’ll admit, I’m one of those that LOVES the holidays.
I honestly can’t think of a single thing that I don’t like about them…maybe the gifts? I’m not necessarily anti-gifts, but I love to do homemade gifts.
Honestly, there is nothing that I actually need or that my family needs and that’s certainly a blessing.
In saying that though, I’d much rather make cookies for someone or go buy their groceries instead of exchanging gifts.
I love it when it’s more about homemade gifts or acts of service I guess than actual store bought gifts.
Thankfully, my husband is the same way so he gets me.
This year, we may even do something along the lines of an ‘experience’ box under the tree for the kids.
In this box will be all the things that go along with a date with mom or dad.
For instance, my daughter loves to bake, so I thought I’d fill it with all sorts of new baking stuff for her to help bake in the kitchen on Christmas day.
Our son is obsessed with reading…he could live in the library. So we thought we’d fill up a box with some new books along with a gift card to go pick out some new books and go eat lunch with dad.
I know the kids will love this and they only really ‘want’ maybe one thing each and that’s it, so this year I’m looking forward to this.
In saying that, one tradition that we do each year is plan out a holiday baking day.
What goes into a Holiday Baking Day?
Oddly enough, I actually normally plan this day without my husband home. I usually have a few days of winter break with just the kids, so this gives us something to do one of those days.
I go through and make a list of our favorite treats for baking and then we head to Sam’s Club and stock up on everything we need for our baking day.
We shop Sam’s Club because we need a larger supply. Once we get our recipes made we box them all up in festive boxes and deliver them all around town to family and friends.
My grandma used to do this every year with my sister and I, now I love that I can carry that on with my kids.
We make sure we have a variety too from cookies to whoopie pies and holiday mixes, we cover it all!
This year, we decided to make these tasty Holiday Sugar Cookie Whoopie Pies.
I also added in a delicious Easy Spinach Dip to pair with our Yeasty Dinner Rolls too.
We did a simple setup for our holiday table, which was perfect to make the food the staple.
What do you use for Holiday Sugar Cookie Whoopie Pies?
We picked up the 5 Pound Pack of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix at Sam’s Club.
This is PERFECT because you can use plenty of the packages for your traditional sugar cookies or cutout cookies.
Then, you can mix it up for the Holiday Sugar Cookie Whoopie Pies to give a little different twist.
My daughter and I headed into the kitchen to whip up these together and it was a great time.
Of course, her favorite part is decorating and eating them!

Can you use Sugar Cookie Mix for Whoopie Pies?
Yes and it taste fabulous! The trick here is that you will add a few extra ingredients to get it more of a cake like texture.
Tips for Making Holiday Sugar Cookie Whoopie Pies
I have a few tips for making these, one is that I highly suggest using a round lid or biscuit cutter to cut out the shapes.
This will give you the perfect circle shape for the whoopie pie. They will rise just a bit.
Be sure to keep extra flour on hand because you will want to be sure the dough is floured well when you are working with it. It can be very sticky to work with.
The flour helps avoid all the sticky.
Parchment paper will work wonders for you, line the cookie sheet with parchment and they will come up perfectly after they are baked.
It’s also necessary to let these cool for at least 20 minutes or so before frosting.
I also suggest putting the frosting in the fridge to get it nice and cold before using it for the whoopie pies.
Other Holiday Treats
Also, be sure to add Coke® Minis from Sam’s Club and their delicious Members Mark Yeasty Dinner Rolls. The mini cans are the perfect size for holiday entertaining, and pair perfectly with your holiday meals.
I also love that they come in a pack of 30 at Sam’s Club.
Now, it’s all about the main meal and I guarantee you can find all you need at Sam’s Club for that too!
