Whoopie Pies that is. I'm determined to give cupcakes a run for their money. Cupcakes are out and Whoopies are in. Especially if those whoopies are made by your very own Baker E!
The concept is simple: Two soft, cake-like cookies surround a luscious cream filling. But the possibilities are endless in terms of flavor combinations. Above you see the innards of a Cookies 'n Cream Whoopie.
Sweet buttermilk and a hint of cocoa are what make the Red Velvet Whoopies so special, and you can almost always pick one up at Green Aisle Grocery.
And there isn't a thing wrong with the classic whoopie, this is the type of whoopie pie I grew up on, but I've added premium vanilla to the cookies and real vanilla beans to the billowy filling.
You know you want one, so visit A Full Plate or Home Slice Pizzeria if your in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia or Green Aisle Grocery on E. Passyunk to get your Whoopie on.
