My favorite treat as a child. They don't last long in our house. Wonderful for bake sale's or a midnight snack. Sit down and relax with a glass of milk and a whoopie pie, and think about those childhood memories! Enjoy!

These are fabulous! Super easy to make too. I did use a different filling (one I used has marshmallow creme in the filling).

What a great recipe. Just a note for the readers though. If you want small pies and not huge one, you may want to only but small spoonfuls of batter, because they grow twice the size of the scoop you put on the pan! Alternate frosting: 6 oz of cream cheese 1 tsp of vanilla 2 tbs of milk 1/8 tsp of salt 1 16 oz bag of confectioners sugar Mmmmmm... my husband loves this frosting!
