My better half doesn't eat marshmallow,she's vegan,so looking for a different filling,don't like the shortening version either...need to find a different filling.

Wrong filling. They call them Moon Pies around here. Scrapper_G has the real Whoopie Pie filling and I'm use to Aunt Ruth's version of the 'cookie' it requires sour cream so it's rich, dark and very moist. As a Moon Pie goes. Not bad. As a Whoopie Pie? Epic Fail.

One of the best Whoopie pies I've tasted. My family loves them, have already made them 3x since Christmas.

I made this recipe a long time ago and it was delicious, even with the marshmallow cream. My family ate them up. I would definitely make these again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2012

I agree with Scrapper_G about the filling. Im also from Pa Dutch Country and grew up eating my mom's Whoopie Pies. I would never put marshmallow anything in a real Whoopie Pie. I live in Cleveland now and whenever I would mention this cookie, most had never heard of it including my husband. Now they are his favorite cookie and he asks for them every Christmas from my mom, even after our divorce.
