WHOOPIE!! 1-28-12

As I continue on in my quest of finding, and trying, Pennsylvania Dutch/Amish baked goods (see ‘The Giving Pie’ post), I’ve ‘tripped’ over Whoopie pies in one of those ‘free Kindle baking books’.  So I’ve begun to search out different recipes and have decided to try this one first.  These are red velvet whoopie pies filled with a marshmallow cream filling.  I really like the texture of the ‘cookies”.  They are basically a cake like cookie.  I think these could be a little sweeter but hubby said he likes them just the way they are (he does not have a big sweet tooth like I do)!  I topped these with a white chocolate drizzle.  I do understand why the are called “WHOOPIE PIES” now because they are tasty and you do want to yell that ;-)!  If you’d like to read more on the history of these, go here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whoopie_pie

Happy Baking!!

    Hello Dizzy Dame!
    I just “found” your business and blog from following a thread in the Tucson Weekly. I doubt that I could exactly trace the way again. I seem to have had a Dory moment ..which I usually call an ADD moment(which is true). Anyway, I can’t remember what I was actually looking for! Oh well, I enjoyed reading your blog. I too am Dizzy and balance-impaired ..in my case from inner-ear vertigo problems. I’ve been Dizzy for 25 years now, so I am pretty used-to it. I am certainly sympathetic to anyone who has had to adjust and live with it.

    You have written some lovely stories here (my sweet-tooth is now aching for a treat!). I was very touched by the story that included your mother’s illness. I hope that your mother is doing better. She sounds like a dear.

    I wanted to comment on your list of 10 things you would take to a cooking island. I looked at the photo you included and noted the mallet that you listed ~ It’s actually a woodcarving mallet made from Lignum Vitae, one of the heaviest woods in the world. I know it well because I own 2 of them, a large and a small, left-over from my woodcarving days. I think you have inspired me to bring them out of the garage and into the kitchen. I bet that with them in the kitchen, I won’t need that spice-grinder that I’ve had my eye on!

    Thank you for brightening my day! Now that I have stumbled onto your site, I will visit again. :D
    Cheers!

    Hello Patty!

    Thank you *so* much for making my day!! I have *always* wondered what that mallet is and now I know thanks to you!! :-) Yes, do bring yours out of the garage and use them in the kitchen!! I have so much fun ‘pulverizing’ things and always get so excited when I get to use the mallet! Thank you for educating me on what I have!!

    I am so glad that you stumbled onto my business page/blog! It is not arrange very well so I appreciate that you navigated your way through and read things! I have not had a lot of time to blog lately but will try to get back to it soon! I love that you have Dory moments too,,,,or at least I think they are fun, most of the time ;-)!

    I am so sorry that you have balance issues and for so long too. I at first thought I was going crazy but after all of the testing and the doctor’s explanations I realize that that is not the case, wheh! It is an adjustment but things could always be worse so I try to live by that mantra. I am unable to drive and that has been the biggest adjustment to date. But it has given me the time (staying at home most of the time) to bake more often so that is good!

    Thank you for your kind words about my stories and my mom. She is still battling her health issues but hopefully she has healed enough to have a repair surgery and if so we hope that all goes well and she will be on her way to a normal life again.

    You are most welcome for brightening your day and I thank you for doing the same for mine! If you have any questions about baking or want to chat about dizzy issues, please feel free to email me at: email hidden; JavaScript is required. I am happy to help!

    I am not sure if you use Facebook or not but I also have a business page there and try to update more often there.

    Thanks again!! Have fun using those mallets!!

    Toodles,

    Rene’ The Dizzy Dame
