Day 7: Biscoff White Chip Cookies/ Whoopie Pies
I wanted to try a Nutella frosting I'd had my eye on so I thought keeping half a batch cookies and turning the other half into whoopie pies seemed the right thing to do. I'm all about culinary justice, ya know. To assemble the whoopie pies just slap two tbsp of nutella frosting between 2 cookies. They may be the most beige looking things you'll ever eat with or without frosting but they're the most delicious beige you'll ever taste.
