From a baker extraordinaire and Chez Panisse pastryalum, here is the ultimate guide to making whoopie pies, the latest baking sensation.
Make way, cupcakes! Whoopie pies--two soft cookies with a creamy filling (and sometimes frosted, too!)--are turning up all over. Now, acclaimed professional baker Claire Ptak shares all the recipes home bakers need to make more than two dozen sensational whoopie pies featuring an amazing range of fresh ingredients and seasonal flavors. Alongside Ptak’s original recipe for the classic whoopie pie (chocolate with marshmallow filling) here are all-new combinations including Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, Lemon Cream, Rose Pistachio, Mocha Orange, Salty Caramel, and Banana Cream Pie. Frozen and chilled whoopie pies (Key Lime Pie) and holiday versions (including for Halloween and Christmas) make this an essential baking book for throughout the year.
