Hello everyone,

Are you all enjoying Pesach?

I do, though it's rather boring for me cause I can't work :(

I would like to present to you, for the people who don't already know them, the


A rather simple name for a a very delicious cousin of the cupcake.

I fell totally in love with them (eating them and making them)

A whoopie pie is like a sandwich, but made with two soft cookies with a fluffy filling.
The original and most commonly made whoopie pie is chocolate. but cooks like to experiment, and today they come in all flavors and colors.

The recipe for whoopie pies has its origins with the Amish, and in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania in the United States. Amish cooking is about old recipes that have fed families for generations, with no trendy or cross-cultural fusions or mixtures.
These cake-like whoopie pies were considered a special treat because they were originally made from leftover batter. According to Amish legend, when children would find these treats in their lunch bags, they would shout "Whoopie!"

Here are some links of articles about the whoopie pies

Anyway I'll post some pictures for you all to get familiar with this new trend.

After Pesach of course available at Cupcakes & Cookies.

For now חג שמח
