Strawberry Whoopie Pies

Strawberry Whoopie Pies

These Strawberry Whoopie Pies are such a fun treat to make for family and friends.

It is generally accepted that whoopie pies originated in New England, where they are a Pennsylvania Amish tradition. Traditionally, they were made with vegetable shortening and not butter, and the two soft cookies were made of leftover batter. While the most common combination is a chocolate cookie with creamy white filling, there are lots of other unique variations to try.
