Whoopie Pies are gaini
A Whoopie Pie is really not at all like a pie. It is a simple dessert that is made of two cake-like cookies with a cream center, which looks more like a sandwich. The “original” Whoopie Pie is the chocolate Whoopie Pie with a marshmallow cream filling. To make one of these delicious treats, you start with two round, dome-shaped chocolate cookies that are soft and moist with a cake-like texture. Powdered cocoa enhances the dark chocolate color and flavor; the addition of buttermilk contributes to their moist texture.
It is believed that the first Whoopie Pie was made in the 1920’s. Whoopie Pies have their origins in either the Amish country of Pennsylvania or in New England. Residents of Pennsylvania believe that when the Amish children at school, or when the farmers opened their lunchboxes, and saw the surprise of Whoopie Pies for a treat, they yelled "whoopie" in excitement of receiving this scrumptious dessert. Wherever it came from, one thing is for sure: it is a wonderful dessert!
