Mommy makes whoopie (pies, that is)

Whoopie pies were on the agenda the other night. I try and make a batch every once in a while to freeze for a quick snack. In fact, I don’t think we’ve ever eaten them the normal way. Gabriella calls them ice cream sandwiches cos they eat them straight out of the freezer. I make them teeny as well. Bite sized as opposed the the American dinner plate size. It’s easier to handle and the kids feel they’re getting a real treat when I give them more than one.

I’ve only ever made Martha Stewarts banana whoopie recipe and reduce the sugar. We fill it with chocolate ganache or lemon cream cheese. They freeze really well but we normally finish a double batch in a month but I can only presume they can be frozen longer. They thaw well enough too.
