Whoopie pies could be declared the official Maine dessert, and many assert that the rotund chocolate confection originated there, although Pennsylvania actually has a an equally strong claim to that honor. No matter-aficionados in both locales never tire of the giant sandwich cookies, and the comfort-food treats are enjoying a renaissance as bakeries offer gourmet versions on the Internet. This little book is a wide-ranging, lighthearted look at whoopie pies and the folks who love them. This book contains 16 recipes including healthy, gluten-free, and zucchini whoopie pies!

My rating: 2 1/2 stars for the book 4 stars for the actual pie!
There are 16 whoopie pie recipes, 5 are non-traditional ie not real chocolate ones - red velvet, pumpkin, banana etc. I was enjoying the cuteness of the book but as I started going through it I noticed a massive problem. There are only 4 recipes that you can easily make in Australia The other 12 recipes require either "Marshmallow Fluff" or "Vegetable Shortening" - neither of which is easily available in Australia.
I made the banana choc chip pies and they tasted really delicious. The texture is like a muffin but the ratio of choc chips to dough is more like a cookie. Its more like a bunch of choc chips held together by banana cake (no complaints here!). The cream cheese frosting is also a nice touch.
