FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA: The Best Whoopie Pies

You’ll want many bites of these whoopie pies. Photo by River Soma | THE NIBBLE.


We’ve had many a whoopie pie, and can attest that the absolute best are from artisan baker WannaHavaCookie.

We wannahav lots of these cakelike cookies:* perfect recipes of moist cake and buttercream. Each one is a pillow of comfort food.

*A whoopie pie is not a pie, but a sandwich cookie. It’s made not from cookies, but from cake. Confusing? Well, that’s how the industry classifies it. A cookie is a handheld food; a piece of cake requires a fork.

Send any dad an assortment of scrumptious Wannahavacookie Whoopie Pie Classics.

The mixed dozen includes chocolate, red velvet and vanilla cake whoopie pies (the best red velvet cake we’ve ever had). They’re filled with chocolate, vanilla, raspberry, mint and peanut butter buttercream fillings, and are packaged in a reusable bucket tin.

We bet Dad will say “Whoopie!”


WHOOPIE PIE TRIVIA: Legend credits an unnamed Amish woman with the invention of the whoopie pie. She allegedly took some leftover cake and frosting and made a handheld treat for her husband’s lunch box. He opened his lunch box and exclaimed, “Whoopie.” However, according to food historians, the real credit likely goes to a Boston bakery that created the whoopie pie sometime during the Depression.
