I love a good Whoopie Pie. My sister-in-law’s husband’s sister (got that?) gave me a Whoopie Pie pan a few Christmases ago and it’s been a pretty amazing tool. It ensures that all my cookies turn out the same size and I don’t have to fiddle with tablespoon measures trying to figure it out.
The recipe for these Whoopie Pies came from (of course) “The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook”. This may be the first cookbook that I bake my way through. I think I’ve done about half the recipes at this point. I would like to point out that the author states that the recipe will make 20-24 whoopie pies, but she obviously was not using the pan I used, as I was only about to get nine-and-a-half out of the recipe. No worries, I had enough ingredients on hand to double the recipe and ended up with 20.
If these whoopie pies look tasty to you, you can try the Neapolitan Whoopie Pies I will be baking next Wednesday, June 12th for the Largehearted Lit event at Word Bookstore in Greenpoint. This event will feature the debut novels of two authors: Alina Simone, whose first novel “Note to Self” was released on Tuesday, and Julie Karkissian, whose novel “Dear Lucy” was published in April.
I’m excited to give these Neapolitan Whoopie Pies a try, as I’ll be going off book. I recently attempted a Black and White Cookie version and it was okay, but I’m eager to apply the same principles (and a fresh strawberry filling!) to this new recipe! I hope to post the recipe next week!
