Mint-Mallow Sandwich Cookies

A lightened version of Whoopie Pies, with a peppermint twist to make them Christmas-y. Kids love them! Instead of adding peppermint extract and red food coloring, you can add 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies to the marshmallow fluff. $mdash;Dion Frscher, Ann Arbor, Michigan

    Wonderful Recipe! Cookies turned out chocolatey as normal and once cooled the marshmallow to a bit to settle on to the cookie but after a while it almost looked just like the picture!

    Had terrible luck with this recipe. Dough never solidified--remained dry and crumbly. Cookies came out hard & with strange texture. I triple-checked the ingredients & instructions and I followed instructions.
