    I tried to make these smaller than suggested so that eating one wasn't such a huge commitment. I used heaping teaspoons instead of tablespoons, but these spread so much that they were still very large cookies... I did end up with more cookies than stated. The texture and thickness was perfect for a whoopie pie. I didn't use the filling on the recipe, not because of the egg white but because I never have milk in the house and didn't feel like buying some just so I could have 2 tablespoons. Instead I made a cream cheese frosting which worked just fine. Folks in the office seemed to really like them.

    Yes! Perfect recipe! Underbake them and you will have a soft cookie. I'm from 'Amish Country' Lancaster County, and these are an authentic taste.

    these to me are not traditional, they are like little debbie oatmeal pies ....not whoopie pies. the cake should be airy, not like a cookie. favor was good on the "cookie" but again not a traditional whoopie pie.

    Made these exactly as written (except had to use my little, old toaster oven) and they are fantastic! Just like the ones I remember. I had no trouble with the cookies or filling and LOVE them. Thanks for posting!

    I can't believe how well these turned out! They're very close to the ones I've picked up at road stands in "Dutch Country".I WILL cut down on the brown sugar in the recipe next time though, just a little to sweet paired with the filling. I made my cookies bigger then stated and they were done at 10-12 minutes. And I added raisins to the dough as well. And PLEASE use this filling! The egg white is NOT going to hurt you, and though the filling initially seems a little thin and runny is stiffens after sitting for a little while! Thanks Grandma2669!
