"A tried and true recipe. It isn't just a Maine recipe. They have been a long time recipe here in Pennsylvania since I was a kid. These are sold at local markets and especially by the Amish. Mmm..good."
"thanks so much this recipe was awesome!!! i think my husband loves whoopie pies more than me lol... he loves them so do all the kids. i have 6 had to double the batch . made enough extra filling that i stuck the extra in the freezer and secretly nibble it a teaspoon at a time.. GREAT RECIPE !!!!"
"Just wasn't my favorite - not chocolate-y enough for me. Sorry, I just thought they were average."
"It's not just a Maine thing! I grew up in Pennsylvania and we called them "Gobs". Now, 21 years later, I see the same recipe going around and it has many different names but the recipe is the same. This is an absolutely wonderful little cookie!! Thanks!"
"This whoopie pie is really bad. The cookie come out so hard to eat except the cream and a little too sweet. I will never make this again."
"I don’t care where they came from as long as they taste this good! There is a bakery in town that makes the best whoopie pies in the whole world. That is until I tried to make them myself using this recipe. From now on this is the best whoopie pie ever! The cakes are moist yet firm enough to be handle. I did limit the amount of sugar in the filling to 4 cups. Thank you for a great dessert! "
"These are good pies and am a maine native but am sorry to say they did not start in maine, the amish brought this recipe with them when they came to the united states in the 1800's. "
"I won first place in the cookie baking division of a local Exhibition several years back. Funny thing is my sister won first place in her local exhibition with the same recipe in the same year! It's an excellent cookie and a real treat. My kids always loved them."
"A Pennsylvanian here who loves whoopy pies too. The chocolate whoopy pies are very good but you've got to try pumpkin whoopy pies recipe #81646. If you like pumpkin, you're in for an awesome treat!"
"Wow! A little rich, but if you like rich, they are the best thing happening. I saw another recipe by this person and that was great, so I took another look. Thanks for posting them."
"Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I haven't had Whoopie Pies since my grandmother made them for us when we were kids. They are fun to make and very delicious!"
"Yummy Maine classics! Whoopie pies freeze well also."
"My husband says these rate Ten Stars. I had a neighbor from Pensylvania and she would make these for us every now and then. I forgot all about them until I came across your recipe. I dropped the dough by heaping tablespoons about three inches apart and made twenty eight cookis halves and had more batter left so I decided to use a teaspoon and was able to have enough to make another 12 Mini ones. These are sinfully good with a nice tall cold glass of milk."
