Chocolate Whoopie Pies
Whoopie pies are a Maine delicacy; you'll find them in every gas station, deli and convenience store. Fresh is best with most things, but, frankly, it's not a real whoopie pie unless it's been wrapped in plastic wrap and left to sit for a few days. As the story goes, the pies originated in Amish country and farmers used to shout "whoopie!" when they found one in their lunch pail. They really are that good. This recipe is from the New York Times: these circles of cream-filled joy are all the rage in Manhattan right now.
