I almost forgot to write a post about my whoopie pie! My date orientation has been a little messed up lately; probably because I’m on a three week holiday… Always a good thing, I guess!
Blog-checking lines: The December Daring Bakers' Challenge had us all cheering - the lovely and talented Bourbonnatrix of Bourbonnatrix Bakes was our hostess and challenged us to make fun, delicious and creative whoopie pies! Delicious little cake-like cookies sandwiching luscious filling in any flavors we chose... What else is there to say but "Whoopie!"
For this month’s challenge, I decided to follow the classic recipe for whoopie pie provided by our hostess to a tee. I took my pies to a dinner party, and I’d like to think that people enjoyed it despite the fact that we were all so full from the cheesy and super delectable tartiflette served by our host and hostess!
I know I said I followed the classic recipe for whoopie pie, but I can’t help but put a tiny twist on my pies. I added a raspberry on the center of the filling to make a more balanced flavor. I don’t really like my desserts too sweet, so the tartness of the raspberry made me enjoy the whoopie pies, and I think the people at the dinner party liked it as well. The only down side to it was when I sandwiched the cake onto the filling; the raspberry kind of poked through a little and made the top of my whoopie pies crack. Nevertheless, bellies were definitely satisfied!
