Gobs are a cookie that I've been eating since I was a kid and baking this recipe since I was in high school. My group of friends and I used to have cookie exchanges at lunch. Everyone wanted to stop by our table on those days! In recent years these cookies have become popularly known as whoopie pies and available in many flavors. The original chocolate cookies with loads of fluffy marshmallow buttercream filling will always be #1 in my heart (and stomach☺).


1/2 cup shortening or coconut oil
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup unsifted all purpose flour
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
Creme filling 


Cream shortening and sugar in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add alternately with buttermilk or sour milk to creamed mixture. Beat well. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F for 8 - 10 minutes or until cookie springs back when touched lightly in center. Remove from cookie sheets; cool on wire rack. Pair and fill with creme filling.
