    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from my Treasury of Home Baking cookbook. I collect whoopie pie recipes now that I live in Maine and love to bake. Using non-fat milk as the only substitute I made, these calculate to 9 PointsPlus (Weight Watchers) per pie; for those of us who are tracking points, I’d suggest eating only a third or a half of a cookie; it’s better than none at all! Prep and cook times do not include cooling times. Enjoy!

      I had never heard of Whoopie pies until I was looking for a different recipe for an "eggless" cake to bake for my daughter to take to school, one of her close friends is allergic to eggs and we didn't want to leave her out, this recipe was both easy and delicious and has now become a regular in our house, thank you so much for posting it.
