WiCkeD GooD MAINE WhOOpie PiEs

A New England tradition.......... Wicked good "Maine" Whoopie Pie's... the filling is made with Fluff and that is what a good whoopie pie filling is made with. It's a mystery as to who made the first Whoopie pie, was it orginated in Maine or the Amish of Pennsylvania. To me I am just glad that I grew up with them and that I can make them today.  Check out Yankee Magazine and print off the recipe and directions for baking your own Whoopie pie's.   

Many Mainers grew up with Whoopie Pie's! Comfort food at its best.  I know I did, Mother made these for us as little kids. Vanilla "fluff" filling sandwiched between 2 baked chocolate cakes.     

Did you know that "Whoopie Pie's" are the treat for the State of Maine.   The official dessert for the state is "Blueberry Pie" with the blueberries as the state fruit.   The soft drink for the State of Maine is "Moxie".     

The Yankee Magazine recipe makes 8 servings, and that is one big sized treat.  I made mine smaller so I go a few more and I used the same recipe for the "Fluff" filling and used it all, then I wrapped each pie in waxed paper and stored in refrigerator to keep longer. 

After baking the chocolate pies lay them out in pairs and scoop out the filling on one side of the pair, and use all the filling then spread the filling and place the other on top and wrap each in wax paper.    Life doesn't get much better then this............Enjoy  

I can't wait for the next occasion to make these again.  

                          Bake Happy  Andi

  7. Hi, Andi! I'm from Virginia but was introduced to whoopie pies as a kid by precious lifelong friends who live in Pennsylvania. My Mom still makes them today for the next generation to enjoy. I agree, comfort food at it's best!

  10. I live in Australia but was born and raised in Central Maine. I grew up eating whoopie pies and blueberry pie (just like everyone else). I never took a hankering for salmon pea wiggle though. :)
