A Whoopie Pie is a US pastry, made of two round mound-shaped mini chocolate cake with a sweet creamy filling between them. The filling may vary, from a cheese cream to buttercream. It seems to have been first created in NewEngland or Pennsylvania. They say that the original ones used to be made from cake batter leftovers, that women baked and put in farmers’ lunch boxes: when they would find the treats, farmers would shout “Whoopie!” 🙂
I have had this recipe for a while, but my first attempt was unsuccessful… so I’ve made a few changes, and this one was a hit: I shout “Whoopie!” as well 😛
I hope to sweeten your Monday with this recipe: try it, and you’ll love it, I guarantee!
Kisses, read you later 🙂
