"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."

"Not sure why so many have had troubles with this recipe, I've made quite a few times with great results. Just remember the recipe does say that the dough will be sticky and to flour your hands!"
