  1. Ahh – I was thinking about Whoopie Pies today; remembering that I made some ‘March Madness’ ones last year with a recipe from this here blog 🙂 I have to do that again!! Love this reminder.

  2. This is funny timing. I just saw a sign that said ‘home made whoppie pies’ at a gas station we stopped at yesterday. Yes. We didn’t try them, but I must say, they didn’t look bad, filled with strawberry cream. I will make your version (because they look simple & yummy) and enjoy with a cup of fancy tea! Cheers to Monday!

  3. Yes sometimes you do have to let go! If you find an organic version please share here, I would love to know how to make it that way too. Thanks for the comment!

  4. Hello ladies!! Love the title and the pies look delicious. I am sure that it can easily be made in an organic version for my greenie friends. Not sure though if you could get organic cream cheese though. I have never tried to find it. Oh well, sometimes you have to just live a little right???

  5. I confess… I’ve never made whoopsie pies. But you are so right – they sound so simple and just perfect for making a gloomy Monday a celebration!
