Whoopie

Not snow...

Pulled out my favorite recipe for whoopie pies that I got out of the local paper where we lived the first year we were married. As you can see very well used.(and old)

Make sure I have all of the ingredients What no confectioners sugar! Off to the local little surefine grocery where you can get everything you need.
Including bird seed....

I was a stay at home mom when my daughter was little. when I picked her up at school she would smell my shirt to see if I had cooked any goodies while she was at school. and she usually guessed what I had baked. 


a nice wrap in wax paper for quick lunch box packing. 

And into the cookie jar. My daughter has the original cookie jar
that no one could sneak a cookie from with out getting caught. It is crystal so the tiniest ting and it would ring out in the kitchen telling on the goody thief such wonderful memories sighhhhhhh
 l
One left for the cook and so yummy and I wonder why my pants are getting tight???
More snow tonight but today was sunny and 30 the best day all winter! Stay warm everyone.

I looked at the pictures and thought "why is she putting sunflower seeds in whoopie pies?" I should have finished reading first. Lol. I hope you don't get too much snow

I miss cooking goodies and miss eating them, lol.
I always made the peanut butter fudges, they didn't last long when I could eat them;)

That a cute thing for your daughter to do to see if you baked something while she was in school.

I tried making Whoopie pies before but the recipe a friend gave me for the filling didn't turned out fluffy no matter what I did so I never made them again.

I'm pleased to see that the month of February is getting almost spent. Hang in there.
Hugs,

I love whoopie pies! Good insulation for NH winters! Would you be willing to share the filling recipe? I'm trying to recreate my Mom's (she was a no recipe woman!) I have the cake part down, but the filling is eluding me.
