Making Whoopie

I made my first batch of Whoopie Pies last night.

Well I say first batch I did try and make a batch at the weekend (the egg free variety) and even though they were absolutely delicious they were also very flat and sticky - I have been assured sticky whoopies (in the pie variety!!) are the norm - though not very photogenic.

So last night I changed tactic and tried an oat whoopie hoping they would be a little less sticky and a lot more tactile - and they were 'whoopie!!'

Now if you're wondering what I wittering on about 'whoopie really, has she gone completely whoopie mad??' well no, whoopies are like little flattish cakey things which are sandwiched together with an out of this world whipped filling - not to be mistaken with macarons, because for me that just feels like too much hard work.

Honestly though 'whoopies' are fabulous darling!

I've had this book on order for an absolute age, ever since I first read about it over at Angry Chicken back in the land of......ages ago. Anyhow, it finally arrived last Friday and now the Tabiboo's have gone completely and utterly whoopie mad.

So OK I could of done an internet search for a whoopie recipe and 'yes' there are other books I probably could of ordered / borrowed, but to be honest - I'm a bit lazy in that department!!

Though if 'unlike' me you are not lazy (in that department) then get searching because these little babies are absolutely worth it 'oh yes' deliciousness in every mouthful - mmmmmmmm, mmmmmmmmm!

Now all I need to do is locate myself some marshmallow fluff!!

Happy cooking.
