Thai Iced Tea Whoopie Pies
I'm so excited to share this recipe! Thai tea! Condensed milk frosting! Whoopie pies!
Thai iced tea has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl - Thai food has always been my comfort food - and it's rare I forego the refreshingly sweet tea accompaniment.
If you have an affection for Thai tea like me, you have probably searched the internet for baking ideas infused with the bright orange drink. I have enjoyed experimenting with a few recipes in my own kitchen, like Thai tea layer cake or infused frosting.
In an effort to expand the available recipes online inspired by Thai tea or boba drinks, I created these incredible Thai tea cookies! If you have never tried a whoopie pie, they are cakey cookies with a soft crumb texture and much more moisture than a typical cookie - almost like a cookie/muffin top hybrid.
It's typical to fill whoopie pies with a sweet frosting reminiscent of marshmallow fluff.
Whoopie pies are said to have been invented by Amish women; to avoid wasting cake batter it was dolloped onto cookie sheets and baked, then filled with excess frosting! I love this fact and it resonates with my baking style of saving all odds and ends for a later project, including cake scraps!
If you have a favorite flavor, chances are it can be infused or added into a whoopie pie recipe. Pumpkin, banana, cinnamon and of course, the classic chocolate are a few of my favorites!
This recipe will require thai tea powder, bagged thai tea or prepared thai tea (tea that has already been steeped & mixed with milk - sometimes available at import grocery stores). My preferred tea mix is linked at the bottom. The whoopie pies are enhanced by using a cookie dough scoop, if you have one; however, they have always had a sloppy quality to them.
