Assembly is simple, and how you eat them is up to you: Bite into the pillowy sandwiches, or twist and lick.

"My grandma only made whoopie pies on special occasions," says Katie. "I was always so excited to see them in her kitchen! These are inspired by her recipe and dressed up for the holidays with the addition of crushed candy canes. They are easily adaptable to any season by substituting flavorings and candies. Have fun with them and get creative. They make great gifts too."
