I woke up early this morning, before it got hot, and decided to do some baking. Around here, summer time is whoopie time....whoopie pie time, that is.
I don't really know why. They're kind of sticky and need refrigerating no matter what the weather, and warm humid days don't really help. But there you are. Whoopie pies are for summer.
If you're interested, I make the whoopie pies from this recipe over on the Taste of Home website, and you can go there if you want to get your mixer on. I will say I don't do the cooked flour frosting, as my children don't care for it. I usually mix up a buttercream frosting with some marshmallow fluff in it.
For those of you who thought I had something else in mind, I give you Eddie Cantor from the 1930 film "Whoopee." See? One spells it differently even. Now get your mind out of the gutter, and contemplate the ruffly get-ups on those ladies. It makes me itch even thinking about it. I think I'll stick with whoopie pies.
