Whoopie Pies

Have you ever made Whoppie Pie? I just made some for the first time.  These tender little cakes are fantastic.

The traditional Whoppie Pie is not a pie at all, but a cake like sandwich cookie with a luscious cream filling.

The Whoppie Pies are easy to make at home.

After you pull the cakes from the oven, let them cool on the baking sheet.

I put the baking sheet on something like a cool stove top so air circulation gets around it. Or I use large, thick bamboo trivets.

You can bake the cakes a day before assembling the whoopie pies; store them unfilled at room temperature. Once the pies are assembled, refrigerate them in an airtight container. They’ll stay fresh a couple of days.
