Makin' Whoopie

I have to confess to a new obsession.  OK, maybe not a new obsession, but a growing obsession of which I am feeling especially ardent.  I just don't know why I haven't been able to get it off my mind.  I've been planning this surprise for a while now...  I considered waiting for Valentine's Day, but I just don't want to wait!  Some people have suggested some great ideas for spicing things up a bit...  Some of those suggestions may prove interesting, but I don't know how adventurous I'm feeling just yet.  I think I'll stick to the standard, maybe not as exciting, but always reliable, right?  Yep, I've been daydreaming about makin' whoopie (pies) for about a week now.

What did you think I was talking about?!

So, with today being a holiday from school...  And with the kids all stuck indoors due to the snowy/foggy weather, I decided today was the day!

I'm always hesitant to try a new recipe.  Especially since moving to our current elevation.   It's just a fact that some baked goods don't turn out well up here.  And I loved the idea of pumpkin spice whoopie pies, but I decided to start with the basics.  So, that's just what I did.

I'm not sure I'm gonna call my whoopie pies a rousing success, but they were pretty good.  Not pretty, mind you...  But they tasted good...



Anyone else out there in the mood for makin' whoopie...  pies...?

That looks like a giant moon pie!

HPH--I guess a Whoopie Pie is similar to a Moon Pie because the filling for both is based on marshmallow fluff.

The Whoopie Pie has chocolate, cake-like cookies filled with a frosting that includes the fluff.

Moon Pies are graham cracker cookies filled with fluff and dipped in chocolate. A little different, but also very good!

The post certainly deserves a response, but I have no idea when it will come to me....
