I was very disappointed in these. Obviously, A Taste of Home doesn't know what true whoopie pies are. These are just very small soft cookies with a runny mint filling. Whoopie pies are cake like cookies that are bigger than a cookie filled with icing. They tasted good but they didn't taste like whoopie pies either. I grew up on whoopie pies and believe me, these aren't them. They should change the name of these so people won't get confused with the real thing! I will not be making these again.
