    I could not find a kid safe (no raw eggs in filling) whoopie pie recipe anywhere until this one! Whenever we visit any Amish markets, I love buying whoopie pies, but was always worried about our 4 kids having them because of the raw egg whites. This filling is just as delicious and contains no eggs :) If you have never had or heard of whoopie pies, they are big soft chocolate cookies with creamy filling. I know...not a pie at all! These are great and kid friendly!

      Well - I made these - a bit skeptical, I admit. I grew up in Lancaster County, PA, where these are standard fare. The filling turned out surprisingly well, but the cookies left much to be desired, although I followed the directions exactly. SO - next time - maybe I'll use this filling recipe, and revert to my own "county" recipe. :) These aren't 'bad,' just not quite what we're used to around here - but they got eaten pretty quickly anyway! Thanks for sharing! The filling's a keeper!

      I have been searching for a recipe like this for years. Ever since our neighborhood bakery went out of business 20 years ago. They made the most wonderful whoopie cakes. These come as close as I can remember. thank you for sharing
