Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

I am back after a week vacation with friends and kids. My kids like this whoopie pies a lot came across this in a magazine. I tried this for Christmas and enjoyed but took a long time to share with you people. This is the first time I am trying cream cheese,  It tasted bit sour so I didn’t like the filling much but my kids loved it. Planning to redo this with some other filling will post soon.
