I have never really thought much about whoopie pies. I've never had homemade ones. Never seen homemade ones and never even knew that they were called whoopie pies... I thought they were just chocolate creme cookies. Like, a little debbie oatmeal creme pie, except with chocolate cookies, instead of oatmeal.
But, reading Cookie Madness I saw a post from her about homemade whoopie pies and they intrigued me. I kind of dismissed them initially. But, I found myself thinking about them more and more and finally I decided, they would be a fun addition to SQB's Birthday Cookies.
When the cookie part first came out of the oven, frankly, I was a little disappointed, the cookies tasted salty to me. Not as sweet as I had hoped for.
But, after they sat overnight with the creme filling inside them. Wow!!!! They became very delicious. These are awesome! They are soft and moist cookies and the creme inside is fluffy and sweet, but not cotton candy sweet- just right sweet. A great recipe that I will definitely make again when I am looking to impress people. (They weren't hard at all to make!) Apparently, I'm not the only one that thinks they are good, I got a text message from SQB after she had tried them that said... "OMFG the whoopie pies are soooo good!"
My work here is done.
Recipe is here (I made the amish version).
(I apologize for my picture taking skills... they suck lately. I take like 15 pics per item and I'm struggling to find one good one out of all of them! Uggh).
