Wow !  we have the same name (almost) and I make whoopie pies also and have been trying to find a recipe that doesn't take forever and one that doesn't call for cooking the filling my family does not like that filling.

Wow, Henni B, that's a lot of whoopie pies.  My mother used to make them frequently and her filling recipe had marshmallow fluff in it.   I'll have to look through my recipes because I'm pretty sure I have her recipe for them.

Hi Kelly S!
Welcome to VBB!
I made Whoopie pies once and the filling was frosting and cream cheese!
My family told me it was to strong--i got it from a website
next time i will probably do frosting or whipped topping on top of it and drizzle with Choc. syrup!
--Good Luck Kelly Smile
Enjoy VBB!
I did when i started nd it is my Favorite site!
So many wonderful ladies that welcomed me!

My mother-in-law made woopie pies for my husband as he was growing up.  Our four kiddos loved them and I let grandma be the one to make them.  I didn't want to take anything away from this wonderful woman who became my husband's mother when he was 8 years old.  She had never been married, was 38 years old and took my husband as her own son.  His brother and sister were 9 and 10 years older than he, so he was like an only child. 

Two of our daughters make the woopie pies for their families and enjoy thinking back to this wonderful woman who became one of my best friends.  I miss her so much.

We called them "gobs" in Western PA, where we were born and raised. 

The pumpkin gobs are awesome, too.

Henni B...

That is very nice of you to share your Whoopie Pie recipes!  I love Whoopie Pies and a good cream filling and moist cake makes them a winner every time.  I live around may Mennonites and they are always making home-made Whoopie pies!  I never made them but I always wanted too.  So, you gave me the initiative to try making some.  MMMmmmm...which should I make first?! 

Thank you!!

With any luck the Whoopie Pie will be the next "cupcake"  The cupcake has more than had it's 15 minutes of fame.
So far the only Whoopie Pie that I have not truly liked was the Red Velvet Whoopie Pie.  But then again that should not have surprised me as I have yet to try a Red Velvet Cake that I like.  I did get an Oatmeal one that was more like a hard oatmeal cookie with the whoopie pie filling in it. It was pretty good but I think my favorite is the chocolate with peanut butter filling.  (Does that surprise anybody???)

I like a Red Velvet Cake and I cheated and bought DH Red Velvet Box Cake and I was very surprise how good it was (moist).  Box cakes today came a long way from years ago!

Whoopie Pies are better than good they're "GGGGRRREAT" ( to paraphrase Tony the Tiger..)

I have not made them only because I have so many in the freezer.  Once this supply is gone I will make them. (If my friend does not bring or send any more.)

The only dilemma I have is the filling.  What is the REAL filling for a whoopie pie supposed to be?  The ones I have had is a creamy filling sort of fluffy but not like a twinkie but it does not taste like it has the marshmallow but then again since I have not made any not sure what the marshmallow filling turns out like....

I have made the creamy filling that Henni posted and it is a great recipe but when I made it in the past I did not think it had a lot of flavor...maybe boosting the extract
