Vanilla Whoopie Pies

2205

Growing up in a small town in central Pennsylvania there was never a shortage of whoopie pies. I grew up in a community where half of the population was Pennsylvania Dutch. There wasn’t a store or farm that you didn’t pass where you couldn’t find a whoopie pie for sale. The variety of recipes come in just about any flavor imaginable. There is chocolate, spice, pumpkin, oatmeal, lemon, and chocolate chip. My personal favorite, however, is vanilla. That is the recipe that I have for you today.
