This weekend I baked a batch of whoopie pies. The cakes and the filling were both quite simple to make and my family really enjoyed them, especially my brother. The recipe can be found here.
According to food historians, Amish women would bake these desserts (known as hucklebucks at the time) and put them in farmers' lunchboxes. When farmers would find the treats in their lunch, they would shout "Whoopie!"
