What? You haven’t had a Whoopie Pie before?
Today would definitely be the day for you to partake in such a delight.
They’re pretty simple. Basically, they consist of two pieces of cake with cream inside. Chocolate or pumpkin cake with white cream filling are most popular.
Whoopie pies are actually the official state dessert of Maine. Yup, they have a state dessert!
I see these starting to crop up in the late fall in my neighborhood grocery store. Every once in awhile I succumb to one but usually have to split it with someone else as it is so rich.
I haven’t yet attempted to make them myself – I likely avoid them because I know how dangerous it would be to have these in my home! But they do seem pretty simple. Hmmm, I think I hear my KitchenAid calling!
Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!
