A Whoopie Pie is like a sandwich made with two soft cookies with a fluffy white filling. The original and most commonly made Whoopie Pie is chocolate, but cooks like to experiment, and today a variety of flavors have become popular.
Whoopie Pies are a New England phenomenon and some Mainers have even claimed that they were weaned on Whoopie Pies.
So, how do you get an authentic New England Whoopie Pie here in the mountains of Colorado? Come on out to The Big Chili Cook-Off in Evergreen on September 11, 2011, where Mainstreet Restaurant will have a vendor booth featuring these spectacular desserts, made in-house at their restaurant with a tried-and-true New England recipe. While you’re there, enjoy the art, the music, the other scrumptious food and the chili & beer ~ all in support of our mountain area volunteer fire departments!
