What is a whoopie pie, you ask? Well, it is a baked good consisting of two round mound-shaped pieces of cake with delicious icing pressed between them. The origin of this treat is controversial. Us Mainers like to credit ourselves with this invention, but so do the Amish in Pennsylvania. The legend proclaims that the Amish women used to bake whoopies pies for generations and people would shout "Whoopie" when they realized they were getting one of these treats.
Being a New England tradition for many years, whoopie pies are rapidly becoming a national phenomenon. Chicago Tribune proclaimed them to be the "it" dessert of 2010. Many foodie bloggers are predicting the whoopie pie will become the next cupcake!
