I didn't like these. They were not worth the time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is not worth the time. It was a waste of ingredients. There is something very very off in the recipe. A lack of instructions adds to the frustration. The batter was way to dense and didn't bake and the frosting was soupy. Not good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I tried to make these for Thanksgiving desert. What a total waste of time and ingredients. There wasn't enough liquid in the recipe to incorporate all the flour and other dry ingredients, not even with the four large eggs. Ran to the local grocery store and picked up back up Pumpkin Pie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I should have researched the whoopie pie recipes more carefully. This recipe seemed easier than the others, but it lacks in directions and worst of all, flavor. This recipe is not worth your time or effort. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I grew up eating the Annapolis Amish Farmers' Market whoopie pies. This recipe is off. I made it again and this time, put the water from the filling in the dough, and left water out of the filling. I added twice the sugar and shortening to the 1 egg, and it was extremely close to the original recipe. The cake is not quite right, but with the water in it, it is much closer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Being from Lancaster County, Pa, I am very familiar with how a whoopie pie should look and taste. This recipe, however, is ridiculous! The batter was bland and tasted like dough. And as for the filling, normally there should not be eggs, just the whites, since the filling does not get cooked/baked. And a whole cup of shortening? It never ever mixed with the water. I'm very disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's been many years since I transplanted myself to the West Coast. This was a true Pennsylvania treat from my past. Thank You item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought these would be like the whoopie pies bought at amish markets. they are more like a brownie with frosting in between! and miserable to make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
