Classic Whoopie Pies

1 stick butter
1 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. In another large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Slowly add milk and mix well. Sift dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Drop batter by the teaspoon on parchment lined cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart, and bake for 10 minutes, or until springy to the touch. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then place on wire racks to cool completely.

To make the filling, combine the butter and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl and beat at low speed until crumbly. Mix in extract and milk until combined, then switch to high speed and beat until light and fluffy.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
