Makes about 3 dozen Whoopie Pies

1. Preheat oven 400

2. To make cookies: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the 2 cups flour, the 1 cup sugar, the cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the sour milk, water, and the cup shortening. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined.

3. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes more. Add the whole egg and the egg yolk; beat for 2 minutes more.

4. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 6 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched in the center. Remove the cookies and transfer to wire cooling racks to cool.

5. Meanwhile, to make the filling: In a small mixing bowl, combine the cup shortening, the 2 tablespoons flour, the 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and the vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds.

6. Slowly add just 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Beat well. Add the milk. Gradually add the remaining powdered sugar. Beat well.

7. Spoon about 2 tsp. of the filling onto half of the cooled cookies. Top with the remaining cookies and sandwich together.
