I was going through a new Amish recipe book that my son gave to me as a Mother's Day gift              Whoopie pies: 1/2 cup of shortening, 1 cup brown sugar,packed, 1 egg, 2 cups of flour, 1/4 cup cocoa, 1 teas.baking powder, 1 teas.baking soda, 1 teas.salt, 1 cup milk, 1 teas.vanilla.In a large mixing bowl, cream together shortening,sugar and egg. In another bowl mix togetherflour,cocoa,baking powder,baking soda and salt.in another small bowl mix together milk and vanilla.Add the dry ingredients to the milk mixture and then into the creamed shortening mixture beat until smooth.Drop batter onto a greased cookie sheet,you should get about 18, you need an even number,2 cookies for each whoopie pie.Spread the batter into a circle and flat,each cookie should be about 4 inches across.Bake 350* for about 15 min.firm to touch and cool completly on cooling rack  Whoopie pie filling : 1 cup shortening,1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 2 cups marshmallow cream, 1 1/2 teas. vanilla. in a bowl beat together the shortening,powdered sugar,marshmallow cream and vanilla. When the cookies are cool spread a generous amout of filling on the flat side of a cookie and top with the second cookie,pressing down gentley to distribube the filling,wrap each cookie with plastic wrap and store in a single layer.Recipe makes 9 Whoppie pies.My local grocery store makes what they call GOOBS,during the fall season they make Pumpkin Goobs.I see no reason you couldn't make a soft pumpkin cookie and assemble it with this filling and have pumpkin Whoopie pies.Make any favorite soft cookie and fill it in this manner.

Sounds like fun to make and even more fun to eat!
But 1/2 cup of shortening in the cookies and 1 cup in the filling .... wow.

I love Whoopie Pies.
I have a lot of them in the freezer right now.  I brought some back with me when I was in Maine and my friend sent be a box full of them for my birthday.....come to think about it she might be trying to kill me....
I like the original ones and I think my favorite is the Chocolate whoopie pie with Peanut butter filling. I have a few that have almost what is like a oatmeal cookie as the cake portion I can almost delude myself into thinking it is healthy.
I will have to copy this recipe and make a batch. 
Thanks Gale for another recipe.  Lucky you having someone give you a cookbook for a gift.
I am 99.99% sure there is a recipe on this site for Pumpkin Whoopie Pies.

Thanks Gale.  Sounds interesting.  But, as Nancy said---that's a lot of shortening!!!

This recipe is from an Amish cookbook,so I'm sure this an old recipe calling for a lot of shortening.I have some old recipes of my Mom in laws and they call for lard,I traded that for butter or smart balance or a combination.I went looking on the site and they do have a pumpkin whoppie recipe which looks great.My husband always buys the goobs at our grocery store,so I think I will surprise him one day soon and make batch.I recently found a recipe for Chinese almond cookies and that calls for lard.My Mom's Dr. was Chinese and he always gave me cookies when I brought her in for her appointment and he had mentioned they were made with lard.These are probably my favorite cookie.I know they used to carry lard in the meat department but I always forget to look.I've lost 20# since the first of the year and I don't know if I want to ruin my weight loss?Well maybe just a couple.LOL Nikki you only live once,have a Whoppie pie !

I don't think I have ever used lard to cook with.  It does not look good to me.  But once it is mixed in, I am sure it is great.

My husband's mother always made woopie pies, gobs or whatever you call them in your area.  I used to make them for he and our children as they were growing up.  The pumpkin woopie pies are awesome, too!  I guess I'd better dig my old recipe out and get baking some woopie pies!  Thanks for the reminder of this wonderful treat.

My little, local WalMart carries small plastic buckets of lard in the shortening dept -
under the Crisco and such.
I grew up on lard -- home made lard.  Lard and bacon grease were everything. 
I do remember Crisco in a big gallon can but not when it became such a staple.

The lard that is available now is very different from the lard that I grew up with and using. 
I have tried to find real suet to make food for the birds and that is almost impossible to find as well. Making the bird food cakes I have used the lard that is available in the buckets.

Oh, Nancy the bacon grease! I remember a jar of it in the refrigerator at all times.  Used for frying eggs, potatoes any number of items.  I Have not had a pork roast with oven browned potatoes in a long time.  My Grandma would slather the potatoes with bacon grease and put them to roast with the pork roast.  The result was a brown and crispy outside and a light fluffy inside. OOPS I think I just felt an artery close up on me!

LOL LOL --- Nikki, right this minute I have a little jar of bacon grease in my 'fridge.  Sometimes you NEED bacon grease.  How on earth can you make something like hash browns without a little dab of bacon grease added with the ~sigh~ canola oil?

I'm guilty too of keeping a little bacon grease on hand for special frying!

My Sister in law cooked everything in bacon grease.We went to visit her in Missouri for a few days.After we were home I weighed my self and I had gained 10# in those few days.She asked me if I would save all my bacon grease for her when she came to see us.I told her she was more than welcome to it. LOL I do use bacon grease in some things but not everyday.Smile

We used lard at home all of the time I was growing up.  It made great kiffles, donuts, pies, etc..  Did not know that you could still buy it in a store.  Will have to check this out.
