Liz Makes Whoopie Pies
For a coworker’s surprise wedding party, Liz put aside the sewing and was in the kitchen on Sunday… back to baking. This time around, she wanted to try making Whoopie Pies, which are apparently the new thing.
Last I heard, cake balls were the new macarons. But I don’t see those having really caught on yet (Liz assures me it’s just started). But all the cool kids are having Whoopie Pies for snacks.

Fully mixed, and ready to go in the oven.
This is what the tops and bottoms look like – cooling on the racks.
Not to do things easy, Liz decided on making three different types of filling. This one is salty peanut butter.

Three different kinds! L to R it’s creme de mint, traditional marshmallow and salty peanut butter.

Here are three pies, filled and ready to be put together.
And the final product. These things are huge!
Liz brought in about 17 pies, and from all accounts people really liked them. Overall favorite seemed to be the salty peanut butter.
