Ever heard of a whoopie pie? They're a bit like a macaroon but with a more cake-like texture. Hugely popular Stateside, the name comes from when Amish women would put them in farmers' lunchboxes and they'd supposedly shout 'whoopie' if they found one in their box!
they look so cool and tast great - 29 Jul 2010
You got it just right, lindsayann! These little cakes were just like some my family and I got last year in Pennsylvania Dutch country! Now I will be making these at home. Thank you. - 23 Jul 2011
