Whoopie! 10 Tasty Whoopie Pie Recipes That You Shouldn’t Miss

If you think a whoopie pie is a cookie, you’re right. If you think it’s a pie, you’re also right. If you think it’s a cake, you’re right again. These cake-like cookie circles that sandwich a sweet, fluffy filling go by a variety of names — black moon, gob, and even Big Fat Oreo — and can be considered either one of the three desserts mentioned above.

Even though they look similar, the whoopie pie shouldn’t be confused with the macaron or moon pie. Whoopie pies are in a league of their own, and they aren’t that hard to make. With a little practice, you can be a whoopie pie pro in no time (and your friends will be deliciously impressed).

Whoopie Pie Fun Facts

1. The whoopie pie is believed to have originated as an Amish dessert in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

2. In 2010, Maine named the whoopie pie the Official State Treat.

3. How did the whoopie pie get its name? No one knows for sure, but tradition has it that when Amish children found out their mother was making this dessert for them, they would excitedly shout “whoopie!” — who wouldn’t?

4. The largest whoopie pie in the world was created by confectioners in South Portland, Maine on March 26, 2011. It weighed a whooping 1,062 pounds and was used as a charity opportunity to raise money for troops serving abroad. You can find a picture of it here and a video here.

5. In 2002, Ben & Jerry’s released a “Makin’ Whoopie Pie” flavor. It was chocolate ice cream with a mixture of marshmallow and devil’s food cookies. Sounds delicious, but we’ll probably never know — in 2003, Ben & Jerry’s decided the ice cream just wasn’t whoopie enough and sent it to the grave.
