My latest craze has been whoopie pies. The grocery store (packaged) whoopie pies of my childhood never appealed to me. It wasn’t until last year, a gluten free, dairy free pumpkin whoopie pie from Mariposa Bakery that I started to be inquisitive about them. The raspberry whoopie pie by Mariposa was not good in my opinion and I ended up throwing half of it away (too sweet!).
I really enjoy when the filling is non-dairy. The simplest fillings includes powdered sugar, vegan shortening and vanilla. Edna’s uses powdered sugar, palm oil, canola oil, tbhq (what is tbhq??), marshmallow creme (corn syrup, water, egg, xangthan gum), and vanilla.
