Have you been to a Amish market?  Growing up near Amish Country, I’ve been to quite a few.    If there’s anything you should take from a Amish Market it’s this:  The Amish know how to bake.  Oh goodness, do they ever.  Breads, cookies, cinnamon rolls, pies, chocolate candies.. and whoopie pies. Oh whoopie pies.    Whenever we visited a market (and to this day) I stock up on these delicious pies. I need one of every kind, and I need one right away.  Right there in the market my eyes close, the outer world shuts down and only me and my whoopie pie exists.  It’s a beautiful moment.

A whoopie pie is usually 2 pieces of cake, squashed together with a creamy filling in the middle.  The cake can be chocolate, vanilla, gingerbread or in this case pumpkin.  The internet tells me the name comes from when Amish women would bake these desserts  and put them in farmers  lunch boxes making them shout “Whoopie!” when they found them at lunchtime.   Pennsylvania, Maine, and New Hampshire all claim to be the birthplace of the Whoopie pie but because I’m from Pennsylvania I’m going to shut down this contest and call it. Pennsylvania wins! Whoopie pies wins! Whoopie pies for everyone!

Sadly I had to use my last bath of frozen pumpkin puree in the freezer.  Don’t worry though I have a few more pumpkins to cut open and get puree out of!

While walking around Marshall’s a few days ago I spotted a Whoopie Pie pan on the sale rack.  This baby was $5.  I believe I earned it as I had to stand in line for 30 minutes for it. I knew Whoopie Pies were in my future but I wasn’t expecting to come across a pan.  Actually I didn’t even know they made Whoopie pans.

This recipe calls one 1 egg white for the filling.   My technique is to crack a little hole in the egg so the yolk stays inside while the white come out.

We needed a creamy filling and boy was this great.  I might have taken 4 spoonfuls of this before even filling one pie.
As soon as you start to put a little bit of cream on top, the world gets a little better.
