Where have I been? Somehow, I've completely missed the beginnings of a whoopie pie craze...probably because I generally try to avoid bakeries and their dangerous offerings. According to a feature in today's Times Dining section, they're everywhere now. Are they perhaps the next post-cupcake fad? The whole thing kind of makes me laugh, but also makes me sad, in a way. Does everything eventually need to be fashionably retro-cool?
I've previously posted a piece on my memories of these childhood Pennsyltucky faves, along with a recipe from my hometown published in a 1976 community cookbook.
