"Best ever! Follow the directions exactly. Yes it made a lot of filling, but traditional whoopies have a LOT of filling!!"

"I made this recipe to take to a friend after knee surgery. The pies (cookies) are very good, however, the baking time was 15-18 minutes in my oven. The filling made a lot more than required. The recipe is easy to follow and the time to prepare is not long. I would make these again."
