Comments: Excuse me – a cookbook devoted solely to whoopie pies? If, like us and Henry Ford, you thought of a whoopie pie coming in any flavor, as long as it was chocolate cake with a marshmallow-cream filling, then, indeed, who would buy a whoopie pie cookbook? But if you are interested in learning how to make oatmeal, mocha, lemon, gluten-free, or jalapeño-cornbread whoopie pies, filled with honey buttercream, vegan vanilla, tiramisù cream, coconut cream, or rosewater cream filling, then perhaps you might be open to an entire book on the subject….
The book features more than 40 mix-and-match recipes, from the traditional and fairly traditional, such as red velvet and pumpkin with a tangy cream cheese filling, to the wacked-out nouveau, such as green tea, and oatmeal with, yes, maple-bacon buttercream. There is a little introductory material, some history (they're also known as gobs), equipment needed, storage ideas, and decorating tips, but mostly it's recipes.
By the way, the cover is padded a little bit, to remind you of whoopie pies.
