Pound cake whoopie pies

    30 min

    These whoopie pies are not typical, but still, they respect the tradition. Originating in Amish country, whoopie pies were made with excess cake mixture. Here, I've made them with cake mixture from pound cake. I filled them with a cream cheese filling, but you can use a buttercream, mousse, nut butter, jam or anything you like.
