Whoopie Pies... Whoopie

Today I baked for Baked Sunday Mornings.  I was not sure that I wanted to make Whoopie Pies, but it's not always about the do I want to eat this, but can I make it.  And I can!

I was amazed at how good these are.  The recipe says it makes 10 - 15.  Well I used a small cookie scoop and ended up with over two dozen.  Each pie we still over 2" in diameter.  The night I made them I was also baking for another club, Baking Gals, so I was up to my elbows in baking and they did not seem that good.  But I was wrong.  After I assembled the pies I placed them in the refrigerator to chill. 

I took in the greater portion of the Whoopie Pies to work and everyone was raving on how good they were.  I think these are best chilled.  I tyred one at work, and OMG these are yummy.  The outside cake is dark chocolate with the coffee undertones and the filling is the Swiss Meringue that is my go to recipe for icing. 

I did have a few of my taste testers miss getting any, so I brought in more the next day with some Cashew Cookies.  I has two request for the recipe.  One of my friends is going to try making the tops as a sheet and the cut into squares and fill them.  I wish I would have thought of that. 

Anyway, this is a great recipe and I'm glad to be back baking.


  1. I really like that first photograph you posted that shows the whoopie pies you made and the ones from the book. What a great idea. They look delicious!

  2. I ended up with over two dozen also. These had great chocolateness...I loved the way the cake tasted too.

  3. I don't know what happened, but I got 4 dozen sandwiches from this recipe and they are not really small. But I'm not complaining...we loved them. This is a great recipe for sharing...nice baking.

  4. Yours look so great and I'm glad you pushed through and made them.

  5. Seriously, love the first pic too! interesting idea to bake it in a pan and fill them afterwards... less involved for sure! wonder if it would work :)
