Whoopie Pies (Pumpkin)
What is a whoopie pie?
Actually I'm more interested in how the whoopie pie received it's name, but we'll come back to that. A whoopie pie is a baked good made of two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake, sometimes pumpkin cake, with a sweet, creamy frosting sandwiched between them. So why are these delectable little pies called "whoopie pies"? Well back in food history, Amish women would bake these and put them in farmers' lunchboxes. When the farmers found these treats in their lunch, they would shout "Whoopie!"
