Healthy Whoopie Pies
Until I moved to Vermont, I had never heard of whoopie pies— a cream-filled cakey chocolate sandwich cookie originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. They have a cultlike following in New England. At every roadside stop between here and Maine they are piled up in neat little stacks. And they’re quite delicious…but often made with a filling of sugar-laced shortening. So they’re not so stellar nutritionally.
