i made super sticky whoopie pies this weekend from the king arthur whole grain baking book (the whoopie pie recipe is in the notes of the devil's food cake recipe)...
and i used a marshmallow cream that does not contain corn syrup (i'm not ambitious enough to attempt making the cream from scratch!). i made some carrot soup as well (from deborah madison's vegetarian cooking for everyone but i add way more carrots and 6 tbs rice).
i will bring a few whoopie pies to work but i am sure i will be made fun of since they are so sticky and my wrapping is just OK....i have crappy celophane and even crappier ribbon.
whoopie pie tops and bottoms before going into the oven.
out of the oven.
this is the filling i used...it is SO sticky.
a little overzealous with the filling.
the tester- keithy, the kids, and i tried it! (one whole pie has 8 points! that's just insane..)
the one lone peanut butter whoopie pie...my son had to have one with peanut butter but my daughter is allergic so there was one made and eaten away from everyone else!
carrot soup prior to being pureed- 1.5 cups has about 4 points. it's very filling.
p.s. after our show tonight i am guest hosting with derek on derek and romaine ch. 109- till 10pm...can you say TIRED??? maybe i can get alexis to stay late with me a bit....
