We have yet again; another delicious whoopie pie. I’m a bit torn on this one though. To me, a whoopie pie can be puffy or flat, but it has to be cakey. This one is not at all cakey. It is a delicious, moist, chewy oatmeal cookie and one of the best sandwich cookies I’ve ever had, but I’m not sure if it’s really a whoopie pie. But since the recipie title claims it is in fact a whoopie pie, and since it’s delicious, I decided to include it. The original recipe comes from allrecipies.com. I made the cookie according to the directions, but used a different filling. Click here to see the original recipe.
