Whoopie Pies have been around since around 1920. The origin of the name is said to come from the pie being packed in a farmers lunch pale, once he realized the treat his wife had packed, his initial reaction was “whoopie.” A whoopie pie is essentially a cake based round cookie or cake with a cream filled center. Baking and working with the cake style of whoopie pies can be a bit difficult as you can easily overcook them and they end up dry. They are also more difficult to handle when adding the creamy center. This recipe uses a red velvet cake-mix cookie recipe.
