I've been making Whoopie Pies and trying to perfect the recipes.  I'll have to add the Peanut Butter Whoopie recipe.  It was soo good.

Here's something I used to do with brownies ---- It would work with whoopie pies too.
I'd bake some good brownies with lots of pecans in the usual 9x13.  Let it cool. Remove any "hard" edges.  Slice into three approximately 9 x 4" slices.  Put one slice on a serving plate and cover it with slices* of ice cream, put on another brownie slice.
Cover that with ice cream slices.  Top it with the last slice of brownie.  Ice the whole loaf with whipped cream and put back in the freeer.
You can decorate it or just leave plain.   Cut into slices to serve.
*Ice cream in a rectangular carton makes great slices.  Just tear off the cardboard and slice to fit on the brownie loaf.

What I'm trying to (slowly) say is to fill the Whoopies with ice cream!!

Sounds yummy.  Brownies are always good and with ice cream even better.  Making a loaf of it would be a good way to do a dessert ahead.  Have it ready in the freezer for a super dessert when needed.

Quite a sneaky way to eat one of the the best parts of the brownie.....the other is  dead center where it is soft and gooey...Laughing

Welllllllll ....... Wink  I ALWAYS remove those "hard"  edges from brownies.  I save 'em for ME!
That way I know other people get to eat that soft middle.......... I get the wonderful, perfect, delicious edges.
I'm so certain of that I put extra pecans all around the edges.

The one whoopie pie I enjoy the most is the chocolate - peanut butter with a peanut butter filling.  They're exceptional. Recipe for filling is printed below. 
"Salty" Peanut Butter Filling:
3/4 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional - peanut butter can be salty)

Beat peanut butter and butter until creamy.
Add powdered sugar and salt (if using); beat to incorporate. Increase speed and 
beat for about 4 minutes until it is light and fluffy. Spread filling on flat side of cooled cookie.
Top with second and press gently.

I had my first whoopie pie Sept. 16th. It was pumpkin!! We had gone to
IN for the day and stopped at an Amish bakery. I got only one and ate it
when I got home that night for dinner!!! It was totally awesome!!! They
had boxes of 6 and single ones. If I had gotten the box of 6 I would have
eaten them all!!! lol lol

I "splurged" today and took a Whoopie Pie out of the freezer.  It is a wicked Whoopie Pie from Maine.
I know there is a "dispute" between Maine and Pa. as to who can lay claim to be "home" of the Whoopie Pie...frankly I don't care who takes credit...or blame..for the calories I just consumed but I sure do love whoopie pies.  Tell the truth I have never had one from Indianan or Pennsylvania so I suppose until I try one from each location I should not compare.  Hmmmmmm sounds like a "fact finding" trip if you ask me.

Nikki, Fact finding trips are fun! Our Indiana trip gets bigger every
year. I picked up some pamphets when we were there and didn't
read them until I got back to CA. There are 2 more places that I
want to go to next year. Soon we will have to stay overnight!!!
lol lol

It's Mini Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Salted Caramel Filling.

Carol - I just bought a chocolate cake mix to use on those things.  I gotta' try them too.
Some mini ones would be great to drop in a bag to take to people.

I think I may have to make pumpkin whoopie pies and use the cream cheese butter frosting that I posted with the pineapple banana nut cake.

I usually use walnuts in ,my brownies, but I also save the "hard" edges for me.  Funny how most people like the middle better.

My mother used to make whoopie pies quite often when we were kids.  The last time I made them was a couple years ago.  We were having a family reunion at my sister's house and wanted some kind of easy to serve dessert.  We made tiny whoopie pies which all disappeared fast.  Of course we had to sample some that weren't perfectly shaped.  By using a cookie scoop they mostly all came out the same size.

Nancy--I searched this up and this was the answer "Yes! They will taste great for up to 6 months. Just place the pre-packaged Pies in a freezer bag, seal and freeze. When thawing, leave in the package and thaw to room temperature."
