Whoopie Pies

Whilst the Amish may be very familiar with them, they are a relatively new discovery to me. This is the most basic recipe from The Whoopie Pie Book, which the Fisherman and his wife Lady Pink gave to me for my birthday. Even though I had never made them before I took a few liberties with the recipe (mostly because I don't have any cocoa powder since I almost always cook with actual chocolate and I'd run out of bicarb of soda and golden syrup! I also used dried egg whites in the marshmallow filling because I don't have to figure out what to do with the yolks then!)

They turned out quite well, very sweet and tasty, and they freeze brilliantly (even when filled)

...Funny you should say that - I was reading a fashion blog today and apparently 'whoopies are the new cupcakes'. You're ahead of the curve!

Oooh, they look good! Should there be any lonely ones left lurking in the freezer you are most welcome to bring them to meet me tomorrow! x

Emma - this is therefore the first and last time I have ever been fashionable!

Rbjaneite - they are good, I'm sorry I couldn't bring you any.
