Whoopie pies originated in Lancaster County and are one of Pennsylvania Dutch Country’s best known and most loved comfort foods for locals and visitors alike. They were created by Lancaster’s Amish and Pennsylvania German communities and have been handed down for years in home kitchens and small bakeries, from generation to generation. It’s believed that whoopie pies were first made from leftover cake batter, and Amish legend has it that, when children and even farmers would find the delicious treat in their lunch pail, they’d yell out “Whoopie!,” hence the name. Whoopie pies are actually more like a sandwich, made of two cake-like cookies with a cream center. The cookies are typically chocolate and the cream vanilla, but many flavor variations for both the cookies and the cream have appeared in recent years.
