MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 16, 2014

This was my first whoopie pie AND my first TOH recipe. They came out more like cookies with frosting, not as I remember whoopie pies to be. BUT, they were good. I would just double the batter to drop them double the size, to make them bigger.

We liked the taste of these cookies but I only used 2 tsp of fat-free milk instead of. 2 tbsp. It was too thin. I will try them again.
