  1. Yumalicious! Thanks, J for the great recipe, I knew I could depend on you! DD said they are better than the ones we bought at SKH!! I used my Pampered Chef small cookie scoop to place the dough on the baking pan and it made 26 perfect sized whoopies. Thanks for posting.
  2. This was my first attempt at red velvet whoopies and they came out tasty, but mine spread really BIG! I used a smaller scoop for the next tray and they came out better. Thanks for posting!
  3. Wow!! What A great recipe!!! I have never made whoppie pies but will definately make again!! Thank you Lancaster County! :)
  4. Very Moist, Very Delicious! They are time consuming, but very worth the effort! I made them for just two of us and so I froze some. They freeze really well!
  5. These were totally awesome! Everyone loved them and they tasted exactly like the whoopie pies I've gotten in Lancaster County. They really are the real deal. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will definitely make these over and over again.
