    Manda's Note:

    Gobs are a traditional favorite around here, but it seems that many people out of the area have never even heard of them! Also known as "Whoopie pies" or "Moon pies"...whatever you call them, they are FANTASTIC!! Kids love them. Add food coloring to the icing depending on the occasion. (Red for V-day, green for St. Patty's, etc.) They also freeze well.

      These really hit the spot. We made ours smaller and got about 5 1/2 doz out of them. They are moist and have a great taste to them. I personally think the icing is a little too I will be adding less sugar the next time. Other than that...great recipe!!!!

      I haven't had these in a very long time. My mother made these for me and my sister's when we were growing up. This is the best and easiest recipe that I have come across for these. I made them for my son's classmates the other week and they simply loved them. I have been elected to make them for the school bake sale. Thank you, Manda, for bringing a part of my past back into my present.

      An item from my past! I forgot about these--had them many years ago. My favorite way to eat them is right out of the freezer. Yum. Very easy to make, and the recipe makes a lot.
