Top 10 Best Whoopie Pie Recipes

Sometimes I am never sure whether or not to believe Wikipedia. While looking up the story behind some tasty looking snacks the blogger had called “creamy turtles” Wiki said that they are in fact called “Whoopie Pies” and the story goes that when farmers found the treats in their lunch bags, they would shout “Whoopie!”….is this Wiki winding me up (as it so often does) or is that the real story. Well, I guess we might never know, but what I do know is what order to put this lot in…

  3. I have nominated you for the “Super Sweet Blogging Award”, and it appears to fit this particular post quite well. In general I was looking for those blogs that displayed optimism and a positive outlook, thanks for that.

  4. My daughter and I both agree #8 is the way to go. We tried clicking on the picture to get the recipe but nothing came up. 🙁 It looks and sounds delicious though.

  5. Love #10! Perhaps if I make Camo Whoopie Pies I could hide them around the house and there would be some left when I get home from work….if I could find them!

  6. I am proud to say that I was born (and currently live) in the state that “invented” the Whoopie Pie, Pennsylvania. I also just spent a year living in the state of Maine, that usurper they are, also claims to have invented the Whoopie Pie. The controversy rages on. Regardless of where they come from, they are in fact, quite delicious.

  7. They are, in fact, called Whoopie Pies here in the US! They are a staple at Amish Farmer Markets! And now, I’m suddenly hungry…… mmmmm…….

  8. My dietitian just got me on the right track—so don’t let here see this post! I love whoopee pies and the lemon ones look amazing.

  9. Red velvet and pumpkin spice. That particular stall is a favorite of mine — the most delicious baked goods. I always get something from them each time I visit the farmers’ market.

  10. I had a yen for a whoopie pie yesterday thanks to your wonderful post. Fortunately, my local farmers’ market opened for the season yesterday so I could indulge! Chocolate, of course.

  11. After reading this last night, I went to our local grocery store this morning and got a whoopie pie….banana with peanut butter! 🙂
    We do have some strange festivals in Pennsylvania, and I’ve attended my share of them but never the whoopie pie one. I hope to some time.

  12. the lemon spice caught my eye….and you must excuse me now as I have to wipe off my computer…… 🙂

  13. Red velvet & the spiced lemon for me! If you ever make the strawberry & basil one’s let me know how it turns out… I’m very intrigued about that combination! 🙂

  14. Whoopie pies in Aus. Love them all but I have a fondness for lemon. The sweet, tart and citrusy thing does it every time.

  15. I have been trying to avoid your foodie pictures, but those red velvet thingies SUCKED me right in. I am a weak, weak woman. And to prove it, I’m going to go buy a red velvet cake tomorrow.

  16. I go for the lemon ones, but would like to try the cinnamon Biscoff to see what that is. Fortunately I have just had dinner, so I am not drooling as much as I would before dinner. These are the times I need to eat to live, rather than live to eat.

  17. Okay, I just have to share that in Pennsylvania (USA) whoopie pies are a tradition! It’s often thought that the Amish started the tradition of the whoopie pie. Traditional whoopie pies are chocolate with a white creamy filling or better yet, a peanut butter filling (my personal favorite!). Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has a Whoopie Pie Festival every year in September where you can indulge in over 100 different types of whoopie pies. I have never attended but want to some time. I especially want to play “whoopie pie checkers” where instead of capturing your opponents “checker”, you get to capture it AND eat it! Yum! Here’s more info for you: Enjoy! 🙂

  18. Lemon and strawberry would be my favs. Would skip the LoWeR calorie…if I am going to indulge, then I am going all the way!

  19. Yes (: that would be helpful! That way I will want to go home and eat healthy stuff, not make whoopie pies…which I have a recipe for… Lol

  20. Phew Rachel, I thought I was the only one and I didn’t want to comment that in case I looked like an idiot! I’ve never had one either but Google tells me that you can buy a Betty Crocker make your own double chocolate whoopie kit which I’ll be looking for next time I’m in the shop now! 🙂

  21. In our neck of the woods (western USA) they are called whoopie pies – not sure about the story behind the name, sounds suspiciously like the story for waffles…
    Oh, you hadn’t heard?
    A great knight, on the eve of some great medieval battle, was striding through camp in full armor – he tripped and fell, landing butt first in a freshly poured griddle of pancake batter – struggling to his feet, he looked at the cakes, now ruined by the decorative pattern of his mail and decorative plate armor and exclaimed to the nearby cook
    “Oh, how waffle! Are they ruined?”
    *Snigger* 🙂

  22. Well it is funny you should say that because I have indeed tried most of the Starbucks menu including that! And good for me as well, that is a real bonus.

  23. Matcha is Japanese powdered green tea…if you have a green tea latte (which are very good, by the way) at Starbucks, they use matcha…lots of antioxidants too. LOVE this post, and I see a whoopie pie in my future…probably the strawberry basil. Too interesting NOT to try!

  24. I will take a camo one and a red velvet one please!!
    Now… To go get the piece of pizza I’ve been avoiding for the last hour and a half.. Thanks..

  25. Need some international help here; what is a whoopie pie? Is this something we have in England but which we call something else, or something we are missing out on in England. If it is the latter something is clearly wrong; us English store great value in cakes in all their forms. A lot of them look like macaroons.

Which one did you like?
