"Chocolate sandwich cookies with cream filling. I use reconstituted powdered egg whites for the filling instead of fresh since they won't be cooked." — Nancy

1 1/2 tablespoons
egg whites, beaten
Absolutely incredible -- for the Canadians out there, they taste very similar to Jos. Louis packaged snack cakes. This is the whoopie pie I've been searching for -- moist cakes with the perfect creamy center. If you don't have sour milk on hand, just add 1 tsp. vinegar to 1 c. milk.
This review is for the cakes, not the cream. Although the texture was 5 stars, the flavor was 'meh'. Looked good, felt good, fell flat.
These are very good, easy to make however the frosting filling tasted too much like confectionary sugar. Maybe it a little cream cheese was put in the mix it would be better. I made them way tooo big. These are very sweet. Next time I will make them the size of an oreo not the size of my hand. My 7 year old son had one and finished about 3/4 of one and started to feel sick from it being so sweet. It made about 16 large pies which I froze 8 of. I ran out of syranwrap so I put 4 pies in a dish, placed wax paper over them and put 4 more on top put the lid on the dish and froze them. I'm looking forward to trying them frozen.
This recipe is excellent. I've tried a lot of whoopie pie recipes and this is the best one I have found. I will be using it from now on. The cookie part took 8 minutes to cook just as the recipe stated. The filling came out perfect, not runny like a lot I have tried. Five stars all around.
I've never made whoopie pies before so i have nothing to compare it to. But judging from other people's reviews and Mr.Wiki I pretty much managed to figure what these would turn out like. They were good, I did lessen the sugar to 3/4 cup (I half the original amount)because some said it was really sweet. I also added cinnamon and all spice for extra umph (I was a bit sick of the plain chocolate taste). The consistency was thick enough to be piped, so that you'll get a more even shape ( I figured that out half way baking 'em - duhh!) Didn't make the filling, used peanut butter buttercream instead and they became super-super good! Will make them again! :)
The buttermilk was bad, so I used heavy cream instead. (No vinegar.) My husband kept eating the batter! He liked it. :) I had marshmallow creme on hand, so I used it instead of the cream recipe. I cut the recipe down to 12. 3 of them were eaten right away, and the others I wrapped up and put in the freezer. I'd make these again.
The best whoopie pie recipe! The filling is perfect and easierand tastier than the cooked version I was used to. We wrap filled "pies" individually in plastic wrap and freeze. Some of my family like them best frozen. Note: these are referred to as "Gobs" in some parts of Pennsylvania.
They taste just as I remember them! The filling was very smooth and light. I will make these again!
